Squint Shot 021112

A bit of a strange squint shot? Well, if you've been reading this website for very long, you know I like the unusual. Before we moved on from the front door and foyer of the old Defendorf house, a "bubble" of glass was pointed out to me in one of the side-light windows next to the front door.

The current owner of the house, my tour guide through her house, said as far as they knew, this was some very, very old glass. I think we can be fairly certain it is not the original glass since the house is over 150 years old, but it may well date back to the mid-1920s or so. The house used to stand at the southwest corner of East Grand River and South Second and was moved to its currently location nearly 100 years ago.
