St Joseph, The Virgin Mary, and St John the Baptist, by C. E. Moore in St Martin's, West Acton, London. The three lights in the second north aisle window are later ones, from the 1930s and 40s. They make a delightful ensemble, showing Joseph as a hard-working young carpenter with all his tools, Mary in her purity as a young woman between lovely flowering lilies, and John the Baptist, also looking rather youthful.
