Tiffany windows

The Theodore Parker Church on Centre Street has several stained-glass windows created by Tiffany.

The largest consist of a triptych showing a mountain lake. It's particularly spectacular just before and during sunset - the sun comes right in and as it goes down, you can almost feel the sun going down in the scene. Click on the image below for a larger (much larger) version:

When are church services on Sun. June 6th?
Is the church open on Sat. afternoon?
Is this church near5 blossom St near the Gov Center? Can I walk there?
The iris window is like an impressionist painting.
Beautiful

Don't miss the Tiffany windows at Arlington Street Church! They even have a downloadable PDF tour on their web site, here: http://www.ascboston.org/about/building.html#windows

I am historian for the Village of McGraw, NY and doing a book on the history of the stained glass windows of our churches. The Presbyterian church records indicate that their windows were purchased from Spence, Moakler & Bell, Boston, and are Tiffany windows.
I have been unable to confirm this information and wonder if you have any
suggestions on where I might search.
Thanks for a reply.

Spence, Moakler and Bell had a stained glass studio at 90 Canal Street in Boston from 1897-1916. It would be doubtful that they sold Tiffany windows. My guess is that they made the windows not Tiffany, unless they are signed by Tiffany
