Double Hung

In the days before air conditioning double hung windows that opened from the top and bottom provided a means of air circulation. In rooms with gas lighting it provided a way to vent noxious fumes. I would guess that by 1906 Brown University had electric lights, but I see two exterior post top light standards in the classic gas light style.
