PALING TERBARU

Window tax blank windows. This must be the only building I've seen with such a high ratio of blank v actual windows #camden #london #igerslondon #windows #blankwindow #falsewindow #windowtax

Many of our historical buildings show the legacy of the “Window Tax”. You may have noticed that some of our old homes have bricked up or filled in windows. Some properties were built in such a fashion to balance the look of a building but for many their windows were filled in to avoid paying a tax that was introduced in 1696.
n 1696 under the reign of William III a new act called “Act of Making Good the Deficiency of the Clipped Money” was introduced. The law-makers at the time thought it was only fair that those living in big houses paid more tax as they were deemed to be better off. For this reason this new act became known as the “tax on light and air” and although it is not recorded it is widely thought that the saying “Daylight robbery” originates from the introduction of this Act.

It was a banded tax, for instance, in 1747 for properties with ten to fourteen windows paid a total of 4 shillings and for over 20 windows homeowners paid 8 shillings. The tax was raised six times between 1747 and 1808. By then the lowest band started at six windows which was raised in 1825 to eight windows.

For many property owners the only way to avoid paying the tax was to brick up windows. The building of new properties during this period also reflected tax avoidance as they were built with fewer windows and historical records show that the production of glass from 1810 to 1851 remained the same despite the housing boom at the time.

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

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

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. 🇫🇷 👩🏼‍🎨 🥖

The windows are bigger at the bottom and smaller at the top due to window tax!! Amazing! #dublin #windowtax #windows #ireland

Can u spot the “fake” window at The Red Lion?? Window tax introduced 1696 and repealed 1851. Hence the phrase “daylight robbery”! 😊😊😊

On a #walkingtour in #Bath today learnt that back in the day people started bricking up their windows to save on #tax as the government had introduced a #windowtax. It's where the phrase #daylightrobbery originated. And now people can't undo the bricked up windows because they are listed buildings. #history #beautifulcity

Obviously a victim of window taxes back in the day #windowtax

Windows are for losers. #oldmill #windowtax #shame

Another house, no matter how beautiful to us now, fell to the dreaded 'Window Tax'. It's unbelievable to think this form of taxation lasted 150 years in England and Wales from 1696 until 1851. (1926 in France)
Are these houses to be left like this forever, should we not un-brick them ?

The bricked in windows at the center were commonly filled in to avoid paying window tax, a tax first imposed in England in 1696 that was based on the number of windows in a house. [historyhouse.co.uk]

The conservatory corner at the back of Rousham House, Lower Heyford by William Kent, c 18 century . A study in gravel planting, bricked up windows thanks to the window tax of that time.
