Re: Window from Ampico Factory
By Bruce Clark

Is the window from the Ampico factory fact or fiction? I have heard about the stained glass window, and I've been in close contact with the Ampico factory and those who worked there, but no one seems to have any recollection of seeing it there.

There seems to be much controversy upon its origin, with the possibility of it being created not so long ago by a talented stained-glass person with an interest in the Ampico.

Further research is needed to trace it's origin. It would most interesting to trace it back a few years.
