Sheffield has a plethora of Edwardian terraced houses.  Street after street of them with more or less ornate decorative features.  I came across these windows recently.  They are on three houses each one separated by only one other house in the same terrace.  They are amongst the few that I’ve seen where the window furnishing has been painted to reveal the design.  I was struck not just by this but by the fact that they were on the same row of terraces, not adjacent ones, but close to each other.  It is as if they are a craft, the practice of which has spread by example.
