Wow, that's interesting. I've never heard the story of the window tax before.
@83angle if you google it you can find all the details. Simply, people were taxed for the number of glass windows in their house. The house in the photo shows how people avoided paying a lot of tax - they had the design with all the windows in place, but filled many in.
