It looks like old "salt glass" windows I've seen in old buildings in Texas. That's a well composed picture.
Salt glass? I confess, Google is failing me - I can only find references to salt sold in various glass containers. It seems the size of the pane and the ripple in it, and the probable period seem consistant with the "flat drawn sheet" described here
. Is it the same thing, do you think?Edited at 2008-10-21 07:45 pm (UTC)

It may well be. I learned the term "salt glass" when I was with the Denton County Historical Society in Texas. It was used in reference to window glass made locally in North Texas for homes and buildings in the area. I'd guess it was made by that same flat drawing process, but I'm not sure.
