Perfect lancet windows with curved muntin bars
I've always been an admirer of old stone country churches. The former Eversley Presbyterian Church (now a real estate office) on Dufferin Street is a favourite of mine. I always thought it was the magnificent cut-stone walls of the church that I admired so. While I still have that appreciation, I have grown to think that it is the windows that finally make the whole presentation complete and perfect. Classic, but simple in design, this church's Gothic arched lancet windows, with curved muntin bars, painted white, are a stark but vibrant contrast to the rugged texture and tones of the ancient cut-stone walls. The several windows, with their rows of descending and elongating, diamond-shaped, cut-glass pieces should be the exclamation marks at the end of any sentence that I could ever write to describe this modest, one-time place of worship.
