A glass tax was introduced in 1696, but repealed in the 18th century, SEE Here for details.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
