ABC Wednesday - X is for XXX



X is for XXX............



crosses in a window pane



I am really pushing it this week. I have been involved with ABC Wednesday for all 4 rounds that it has been through, and even with the dictionary to give me an idea, I am running out of things to photograph for X.

So, I decided this time to go with the shape of X - as in these window panes.

These windows are on one the oldest houses in our state. It is the Sherburne House that is located at Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth, NH.

It was constructed circa 1695, and when touring this house one can view the various materials and methods of construction for that era.

The windows are single paned, and I can only think how drafty they must have been when the cold winter wind blew.

I love the history in these old houses and walking through them sends you back to another time.



This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  7. Haha Joy - That was my second thought after the cold wind one. They must be such a pain to clean even though they are pretty to look at.
