I did not learn about these windows in Real Estate School

Ever seen 45 year old windows?

windows on a groove

I was showing a 45+ year old home this week and these windows were very intriguing.  The did not open like a regular window.  You pulled the handle and they swung out on the wood track.  I don't know the name for this type of window but it definitely isn't a sash or a joulsie window!  Amazing that they still work and I bet that they were also not cheap back in the day!

Sometimes you get a history lesson when showing an older home!
