Jesus and the Doctors, by F. Hamilton Jackson (1848-1923), with a closer view of Jesus and the , in St Alban's Church, Acton Green, London W4. This is the third (northenmost) of a sequence of three windows by Hamilton in the baptistry at the west end of the church. It was dedicated by Blanche Rose Harper in 1887, and shows Jesus inside the synagogue, pointing at the Torah, with the synagogue lamp or tamid above it, impressing the elders with his learning. The focus of all these baptistery windows is the child, who, in respect of innocence and wisdom, is given a special place in religious iconography.

Jackson's signature clearly visible in the lower righthand corner.
