Transportation Themed Stained Glass

June 2nd, 2012

I spent a day wandering around New Haven, CT last month. While on the Yale campus, I noticed that Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall (SSS) featured transportation-themed stained glass on nearly every window. I snapped some photos – each pane has a different mode of transportation.

This would be an ideal building to house a transportation engineering or planning department, I was disappointed to learn that it was mostly administrative uses.
