    Glass screen

    Hello,

    I am not sure what the author means by glass screen. If the driver was cold it seems to refer to a window but like I said, I am not certain.

    She turned towards the hunched-up shape of
    the driver seated in his glass cab; and continued awhile to survey the
    great hump of his shoulders and sprawling arms as if through a faint
    inward mist. He sat crouched together, his hands seemingly clasped on
    the steering wheel, his high-angled coat-collar helmeting a motionless
    head.
    No wonder he was cold! A jagged hole gaped in his glass screen like a
    huge black star. This was no surprise, yet it filled her with
    perplexity. What was wrong?

    Walter de la Mare, What Dreams May Come, 1936

    Thank you very much

    Re: Glass screen

    Drivers of a coach/bus often sit in a cab separated from the passengers. These cabins have glass screens.
