A Signature From 1914?

We just moved into a heritage house that was built in 1912. I recently noticed something carved into the glass of one of the windows in our living room. It’s a signature and a date–May 25, 1941 1914:

A Signature From 1914?

I can’t make out the signature. But if it is indeed from 1914, it’s a charming footnote of the house.


  1. How charming! In the home of my childhood, formerly a sea captain’s house on the Atlantic coast, several of the windows were marked with the same sort of flowing script – names of those who’d lived there. These signatures are as creepy as they are lovely. You’ve lucked out.
