His most important and innovative window scheme was the 'kinder-symphony', as Wright called it, for the Coonley playhouse (a kindergarten for the children of the owners and those of neighbours). He created a series of more than three dozen windows evoking the balloons, confetti and flags of a passing parade. The balloons charmed the clients although they confessed to finding them 'certainly daring'.
Made for the Coonley Playhouse, Riverside, Illinois: removed 1967; Bud Holland Gallery, Chicago Illinois; Mr Thomas S.Monaghan.
