Alexander Fleming's stained glass window

Even this is quite unusual, Alexander Fleming, working in his laboratory, is represented in a stained glass window of St James Church in Paddington, London. It was "designed by Arthur Buss and installed in 1952"1. Fleming attended the inauguration ceremony of the new glass window.This glass window replaced the original one destroyed by a bomb-blast in October 1940 and represents some characteristic features of the neighborhood: besides Fleming - whose laboratory was nearby - there are representations of Peter Pan and of Lord Baden-Powell.
