Monday Window: Net Curtains at the Seaside
I took this photograph a couple of years ago on a visit to the quaint seaside town of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast. It is a most traditional, genteel resort and quintessentially English in character.
I’d not seen so many net curtains at the one time since my childhood when they were the norm (Venetian blinds were so avant grade in those days and, well, a bit foreign, not to mention expensive).
So if you are a lover of pieces of net hanging inside windows, Aldeburgh would be your dream destination. I think these are rather pretty.

I’ve never seen net curtains here in Maine, but I love the one in your photo. Those marching birds! (Geese? Swans?)

So Maine Is a net curtain free zone! That’s interesting.

Or perhaps I’ve just never noticed them 😉

Maybe some wry old people with still have them. Do let me know if you see any. I’m now wondering what was the fashion for Windows there 50 or 100 years ago. Isn’t it amazing how the Internet takes ones curiosity in directions it would never have found on its own !

If I see any, then I will certainly let you know.

Ps I wish autocorrect wouldn’t change “very” to “wry” and change ” will” to “with” . It’s not as smart as it thinks it is!
