The object of De Courcy's invention "is to provide for show-windows of store-fronts and for other windows an improved awning, by which the light may be admitted at the top of the awning and be shut off in whole or in part, so as to enable store-keepers to exhibit the goods or other objects as distinctly as if no awning were used, and to protect their goods from the sun or a too strong light." (Patent Number 199,193)
