Short Guide, Maintaining Your Home, published, on 1 November 2014 by Historic Scotland, defines a fanlight as a: ‘glazed area above a door. More correctly called an over-door light if rectangular rather than semi-circular, semi-elliptical or segmental.’
Short Guide, Scottish traditional shopfronts, published, on 18 April 2017 by Historic Environment Scotland, defines a fanlight as: ‘A glazed light situated above a door, often square or rectangular in shape. Glass may be plain or decorative and may have glazing bars of varying designs. Late 18th-century shops tend to have narrow rectangular fanlights with classical detailing. Fanlights became larger during the later 19th century as shops became taller. Hopper type fanlights are bottom-hinged and open inwards to allow ventilation to the shop, especially in provision stores.’
