Leaded

Protected by a storm window, this old dormer window consists of small, triangular panes of glass held in place with strips of lead. You can buy a similar window today, but it's likely to have two layers of glass separated by an air chamber. That eliminates the need for storm windows, a feature that's especially helpful for dormer windows because they are so hard to reach from a ladder.
