A variation on the Chicago-style window is three double-hung windows grouped together, with the center window wider than the flanking windows. This window was created in the late 19th century by architect Louis Sullivan at the Carson Pirie Scott store. The style, which incorporates a large, inoperable plate glass window flanked by double-hung windows, became almost ubiquitous, showing up on just about every colonial spec home built in the 1960s and 1970s.
