Jesus at the Well with the Woman of Samaria, in St John the Baptist, Cardiff, by W. F. Dixon. 1891. This highly elaborate three-light window shows Jesus talking to the woman of Samaria, who is holding her pitcher and listening attentively. The "Stained Glass in Wales" site suggests that the two figures on the right may be St Peter and St John.

The inscription informs us the window was given by Margaret Watson in memory of her husband George and son Dominick McGettrick, 1891. They must have been a prominent family: Dominick McGettrick Watson was a town councillor, see Matthews 89). Harpist angels kneel on either side of the inscription.
