The Widow of Nain ("Weep Not"), in Christchurch Streatham Designed by Walter Crane and installed in 1891 as the first window in the north aisle. The church had pioneered the use of polychromy in the early 1840s, and had attracted a good deal of attention for that at the time. This is one of two wonderfully distinctive and expressive windows in the aisle designed by Crane, both in memory of the Reverend Woodstock Raven, the first vicar of the church, from 1841-1887.
