The Victorians knew a thing or two about shutters which were fitted for security, insulation, light control and some other quite different reasons. When house owners went away for the season, birds could fly into the windows (as the glass was very thin in those days) and the interiors of homes would be damaged. In addition to this, UV rays from sunlight also faded carpets and damaged furniture.They were generally made of cedar or pine. Sometimes they comprised hinged panels that folded back into a box at the side of the window and earlier Georgian shutters were pulled up on cords from a panel beneath the window.
Regrettably by now many will have rotted, twisted, been painted in and become unusable.
