662 TIHE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photograph from Edwin A. Grosvenor WHERE IRON BARS PAY TRIBUTE TO THE CHARM OF WOMANKIND The Turk is not lavish of paint, for under Moslem rule to be reputed rich is not always a blessing. By protecting the surface the owner is not sure to protect all (see text, page 651). But shameless as he is about the appearance of his house, in the old days he jealously guarded his womenfolk, upon whose actions he esteemed an iron grating better bar than many a precept spoken to listless ears. Note the bird on the nest under the bay window.
