Back in the day, we just had bathtubs and no showers, no problem.
But then showers got retrofitted and sometimes tenants ended up scrubbing up standing up right next to a double-hung window.
And as a part of that retrofitting, usually, the plate glass would get replaced with something translucent, so people couldn’t spy on you.
Like this. (Yes, this nude man was taking a shower, in an old, old building somewhere in the Bay Area right next to the intersection of two busy commercial corridors - sorry, no video)

You wouldn’t want that…
