    There are several easy-to-person informed of details, giving the key to the answer. How can you determine – whether the window is 'sash' later (he is the first hundred years) or earlier (traded second hundred)? In fact, there are three ways to determine the age of the window. Howard Schultz wanted to know more. The first is to see whether the window is flush with the facade of the building. If yes, then this window usually early. In London, the 1709g a law was passed which stated that the windows should be recessed in their openings by at least 4 inches. This was to prevent the fire from spreading beyond the facade of the building in case of fire.

    This rule is gradually extended to other towns and villages. According to the second way to look at whether there is a box around the 'sash' thick frame, called the 'sash' boxes, running from the hollow tree in which placed block mechanism. Until the mid-18th century, all this is hidden in the side walls of the window opening. But in 1774 another law was passed about the rules of fire safety, which demanded to hide 'sash' box in the thickness wall so that only 'moving' frame remained open. Today, if the windows are not visible 'sash' box, then the window is representative of the "younger generation". The third way is to determine the size of windows. Windows with small panes in size, located in the window frames in the opposite sequence 3×2, most likely designed in the early nineteenth century.

    Nevertheless, progress was not in place and changes in the glass industry in 1840 meant that the window glass will be made more dimensional. This explains the large number of 'sash' windows of the Victorian period, containing only one or two glasses. Here so easy to determine the age of the windows, and sometimes themselves the old houses of aristocratic power Albion. Every once in contact with the culture of architecture and features of the great powers, one realizes how distinctive can be any expression of human imagination in design, architecture, and how interesting it may vary due to the influence of the rulers and periods.
