For anyone who saw my post yesterday about the window tax, this has to be the ultimate defiance. The phrase biting your nose off to spite your face also springs to mind. Made me laugh.

Daylight Robbery - A Victim Of The Window Tax #windowtax #momentum

MOST RECENT

Window tax. Entre 1696 y 1891. Ante las deudas de Guillermo III por la participacón en conflictos bélicos, a sus consejeros se les ocurrio crear un impuesto a las ventanas, bajo la lógica, quien más dinero tiene, tendrá una casa con mayor número de ventanas. Lo que no se esperaban es que mucha gente tapiase parte de sus ventanas para no pagar el window tax. Como ejemplo este edificio en el Lujoso barrio de st James en Londres. #london #windowtax #stjames #cosascuriosas #cosasqueaprendesconlosguias #picoftheday

I love a walking tour.
In 1805 a window tax was imposed. You can see here where home owners bricked up windows in defiance and also moved them closer together (less that 12 inches was counted as one window!). And herein lies the origins of the phrase 💁🏻‍♀️ ‘daylight robbery’

Did you know that in 1696 a window tax was introduced which resulted to many home-owners covering their windows with bricks. Now a listed feature on a building #windowtax #listed #london #traveling #british #williamIII #william3rd #king

Now available on the Invisible Bordeaux blog: exploring the city's many mysterious bricked-up windows!

Did you know? From the 18th till 20th century France houseowners had to pay windowtax. That’s why a lot of windows, window frames and balconies are painted. Weird, but Nice, but weird. 🇫🇷 👩🏼‍🎨 🥖
