Quiz Time: Stained Glass

It's been a long time since I have done a quiz on my blog.  The topic of today's quiz is stained glass windows.

Where, specifically, would you find these lovely examples of the art of stained glass?


Number one...



Number two...



Number three...



Good luck!

Update...
We quickly got an answer for photo #2.  Scott, the author of the blog Gringopotpourri correctly identified the picture as Sainte Chapelle in Paris, France.  The Gothic chapel was commissioned in the 13th century by King Louis IX as part of the former royal residence.
Congratulations to Scott!  This is his first time participating in one of my quizzes.

I'm still waiting for someone to answer numbers 1 and 3.  Come on, readers.  Don't be shy!  I know that there are some of my regular readers that have seen them,  but I will give you a hint.  Number 1 is in Mexico and number 3 is in the United States.

Update...
Well, three days have passed and I have not had any answers for pictures numbers 1 and 3.

The window in number 1 is located in Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City.  It is part of a corridor of lovely stained glass windows.



The window in number 3 is located in the Wade Chapel of Lakeview Cemetery here in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.  It was created by Louis Comfort Tiffany, and prior to its installation in the chapel it was displayed at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris where it won a gold medal.  Tiffany designed the entire interior of the chapel.  It is one of the few existing examples in the world of a complete interior space designed by him.

  1. My guess for #2 would be Sainte-Chapelle, Paris?

  2. Yay me! #1, at Castillo de Chapultepec, did look familiar, but I couldn't precisely place it. I prolly have a picture of it in my own photo archives. :)

    Fun quiz!

    1. Thanks, Scott.
      I friend of mine recognized #3... Wade Chapel in Cleveland... but for some reason her comment wouldn't go through.
