01-02-1936: Trinity Presbyterian Church, Camberwell, Melbourne, Victoria.

The Argus, Melbourne, Saturday 1st February 1936, page 10.

“At Trinity Presbyterian Church Camberwell, to-morrow morning, the Rev. R. Wilson Macaulay will dedicate a large English[sic] stained glass window removed from the old West Melbourne Presbyterian Church. The window is to commemorate the ministry of the Rev. P. J. Murdoch, who was minister at West Melbourne from 1884 to 1887, when he was called to Camberwell, where he occupied the pulpit for many years”.

The article incorrectly reports the window as “English” when it was in fact made by the Ferguson & Urie stained glass company in North Melbourne. All of the stained glass windows in the old West Melbourne church were made by this firm and when it was dismantled in 1935, it was reconstructed as St. Andrew’s at Box Hill and thirteen of the original fourteen nave windows were reinstalled in the Box Hill church. The the other window (mentioned in the above article) went to the Trinity Church in Camberwell. This window was donated by Sir Keith & Lady Murdoch in the name of Sir Keith’s father the, Rev. Patrick John Murdoch, as indicated during the church jubilee service on the 8th September 1935. (see post 09-09-1935).
