Mike, if you look at the first illustration on the frontispiece, “signal station and observatory”, you’ll see the signals are placed to the left of the large window as you look at it from Holly Howe. John wouldn’t have had any other choice but to use his left hand whilst standing on the sill to put it there. I’d have done the same, and I’m right handed.

One could argue that the choice of sides to fix the sign indicated a particular handedness, but from the drawing the window is offset so that there is a much larger expanse of blank wall to the left and I think it would be the more natural choice.
