Roxy Cafe façade finished

December 3, 2011

It was to be restored glass panelling returning to grace the windows of the Roxy Theatre, but as the old glass was beyond restoration, the windows of the Roxy (Peters) Café now have a faithful reproduction of the original glass.

The work was done by Harradence Glass Decorators, a project Michael Harrington and his team approached with relish.  After ascertaining the original colours used, the team then set about making an exact replica of the glass etching.
