During the 1600s and still at the start of the 1700s, windows were small and placed in lead frames. Only during the last part of the 1700s did windows become larger and wooden frames come into use. The six-paned vertical window became standard in Raahe. The classic six-paned window later evolved into a transformation in which the two lowest panes were combined. The four-paned window with equal-sized pieces of glass has never been used as a window for residential buildings in Raahe.

Window 1A classic, six-paned window, in use during the entire 19th century





Window 2A four-paned version of the previous design.





Window 3A Russian T-window, in use starting in the 1880s.





Window 4A Jugend window from the beginning of the 20th century.







Jugend windows were multiformed with many sizes of panes comprising diagonal lines and many kinds of moulding, which were often embellished with plant or animal ornamentation.
