why the windows bricked up, are there vampires residing there?
in the 1800s there was a tax on windows i believe
less widows means less tax
A glass tax was introduced in 1696, but repealed in the 18th century, SEE Here for details. When was the building in your picture built!
I WAS JUST GUESSING.. MAYNBEE JUST TO KEEP THE LINES IN BUILDING
Perhaps a combination of our two thoughts, or maybe the Blacpool builders wanted nothing to do with that new=fangled glass!
Nontheless, a canny good photo, Bob
