Cool Clicks Thursday:

Transom shares sunlight
where no windows existed
and has character!

Below is an explanation of the term 'transom' found on Wikipedia.
In architecture, a transom is the term given to a transverse horizontal structural beam or bar, or to the crosspiece separating a door or the like from a window above it, as opposed to a mullion which refers to a vertical structural member.[1] Transom is also the customary U.S. word used for a transom light, the window over this crosspiece.[1][2] In Britain, the 'transom light' above a door is usually referred to as a "fanlight" if a semi-elliptical shape, and occasionally as an "overlight" or "hopper", or by the French word "vasistas".[3]
