Description

A number of colour photographs of the interior of the Barkly Street Uniting Church taken while the church was offered for sale in 2011.

The World War One windows in the Barkly Street Uniting Curch resulted from a request made in 1919 from the Barkly Street Young Men's Club who raised money to pay for the project. The Window was designed by Fisher Company, and was unveiled on 14 March 1920 at a total cost of 171 pounds 10 shillings.

The windows are considered to be one of the most remarkable war memorial windows in Victoria, and the 1800s English Gothic-style front facade is believed to be protected by a City of Ballarat heritage overlay. Historical experts believe the windows were designed by renowned stained-glass window-maker William Montgomery. The centre window depicts a young solider bearing an Anzac badge underneath the British and Australian flags. The image of the solider is surrounded by 24 crosses, a single dove and a bugle.
