Hi I have information stating that there were 3 panels of his windows at Notre Dame college of education, bears den Glasgow. the name of the college was changed to St Andrews which was demolished either in 2007 or 2009. However I cannot find out if the windows were preserved and sent somewhere
else or destroyed with the college Anyone have any information re: the windows. Many Thanks Adam

...and a bit more searching shows they are currently on display in the Burrell Collection, to the South-West of Glasgow city centre. Hope this helps.

Adam, You do know that the Burrell Collection is not in Kelvingrove, right? http://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/museums/our-museums/burrell-collection/Pages/home.aspx I meant to put this link in with my earlier post, but I was on an iphone. It's in Pollok County Park and if you click on this link and then click on visiting, you can get directions for bus, train and car. You can also visit Pollok House (ancestral home of the Maxwells) see highland cattle, go for a walk etc. Pam

Adam, now I'm confused. The Glasgow museums site showed that Harry Clarke's "The Coronation of the Blessed Virgin" is in the Burrell Collection, but elsewhere it's listed as being in the Glasow Museums Resource Centre in South Nitshill (visiting by appointment only). If it's really important to you, I would suggest emailing the museum at navigator@glasgowlife.org.uk ahead of time rather than risk going to the wrong place. Hope this helps
