A Bay Window?

This lovely window belongs to the Caven Library which is part of Knox College at U of Toronto. I am not sure if it would be considered a bay window but it feels like one to me. I love all the Gothic details and the wonderful windows. Knox College is part of Doors Open this weekend so I am hoping to take some pics inside the library without disturbing too many people.

It very well could be, in any case, it's a lovely design. You'll be quiet as a mouse and I know you'll get us some delightful photos of the inside.

Our bay window is of the pheasant type but we did add new awnings this spring.

Great building, it looks very Scottish baronial to me..

This should be a most serious collection of rare books in a library that looks like this. Perhaps hand illuminated manuscripts?

The perfect spot to read and take in the view.

If you enlarge the shot that's a very tantalising glimpse through the fab bay window, would be amazing to see inside Pat.

The words "oriel window" came to mind. Beautiful.
