I attended grade school in a building approximately the age of my mother. Each classroom had large windows. I think the purpose was both ventilation and light.

I do, however, remember the teacher being careful which students were placed by the windows.
They come in all shapes and sizes. I’ve always admired this one in the basement display room at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
