Balcony in Bahrain

The antique version of the balcony on the modern building shown yesterday. I took this image in the backstreets of the old town of Manama, Bahrain. I believe the balcony was generally designed for women to come out on and survey the street below without being seen, such modesty for women being considered an important part of the culture.
