The two windows on the street side of your '47 Liner [where your galley is located] are original and correct for your trailer. I call them stacked casement windows because each window pane opens separately from the other. But you must open the top window before opening the bottom window, and you must close the bottom window before closing the top window.
To me, your street side windows are not jalousie windows, which to me have many shorter unframed overlapping glass panes that open and close together. Jalousie windows were used in 1950s & 60s Airstreams, and usually were installed just forward of the door because the individual panes do not stick out far from the trailer body when the jalousie window is fully opened, making ingress and egress easier.
Your street side stacked casement windows were made by the Air-O-Lite Trailer Window Co. of Los Angeles, Calif. Air-O-Lites were used in Airstreams from 1947 to about 1950
and were also used in other 1940s travel trailers. To my best knowledge, no one reproduces them so you will have to either have find some used ones, a difficult task at best, or find practical substitute windows for the curb side [door side] of your Liner. Best of luck with your search.
There will be an informative and nicely illustrated article on 1947 and 1948
Airstream trailers in the upcoming Spring 2010 issue of Airstream Life magazine. This issue should be available in 2 months, so keep your eyes peeled for it.
