The characters in the window are the people who worked at Poremba Studio. Stanley Townes was the artist and painter. Michael Poremba was depicted cutting the glass. Fred Poremba Sr. (then in his early teens) was depicted loading the kiln and his older brother, Ralph Poremba, was shown building the window.
