Title:Basement of the Bryn Athyn stained glass studio (the “glass house”) at Cairnwood
Source:Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn Archives, Bryn Athyn, PA
Photographer:Diane Fehon
Date:Late 1980s
Description: The Bryn Athyn stained glass studio was located in the garden house of Cairnwood, the first home of the Pitcairns in Bryn Athyn. Known as the “glass house,” this building was still functioning as a glass studio for Bryn Athyn Cathedral as late as the 1960s. This photograph is from a series of photos taken in the late 1980s, just before the building was renovated as the John and Gertrude Pitcairn Archives. The basement was used for storing panels of glass made in the Bryn Athyn glass factory.
