Description: 

The barred window in the room where the Gants live looks over "a vacant lot where farmers tethered their teams on market days" - which suggests proximity to the Square - "and where sparrows whirled in gusty clouds about the horse and mule droppings and the refuse from the grocery store" that occupies the building's ground floor (371). As they "hitch or unhitch" their teams, the farmers regularly see Zilphia's face in the window, "holding to the bars" (371).
