Restyling:
Various materials were used for the glass in the front windows. Originally the frame was glued with liquid resin poured in (Mould 1). Then a thin sheet of hardened resin was used instead (Mould 2), then a sheet of clear acetate was used (Mould 3), then clear bicycle reflector plastic was used (Mould 4). Finally the window frame was incorporated into the cottage with no glass (Mould 5). Very early versions are also missing the man's face in the curtains at the back.
