Window Views - Bay windows

Back in June I posted some bay windows in a residential neighbor hood of Frederick. This week I show you some bay windows in the historic section of downtown. Bay windows were popular in the late 1800's and appear in cities across the US. Many of the buildings (residences and businesses) in the historic district have bays similar to these.

Bay windows are back in vogue but nothing like the old ones. There's just no character to the new. These are grand, Lew, just grand :)

We have those kind of windows here too which is common to the old Victorian houses. If I am an Architect, I would prefer as such.

Beautiful and interesting characteristic of your window. Thanks for the visit Sir.

Windows is a very interesting subject. They tell quite a lot about both house and the inhabitants. You have posted a nice collection of bay windows her. I have a lot of photos of more common windows that I ought to have done something with long ago.

I love bay windows, unfortunately they are not in fashion anymore ! We have a few here in Belgium in houses from beginning 1900.
