My dad was a stained glass glasier back in the 50's 60's and 70's. The firm he worked for installed the stained glass windows in many a church in Southern Ontario.
Needless to say, the two homes I grew up in sported stained glass windows all over the place ... by the front door and some interior doors.
I inherited three leaded stained glass lamps he made.
He used to melt the lead for his home projects in our backyard .... I think that that activity (in addition to smoking like a chimney and drinking like a fish) led to his early demise.
