The Lanes and Pooles moved once more and again further north after their two years in Harat al-Sakkayin. Their new house was in Suq al-Qawadis, a section of the long street that runs from the Citadel, curves past Bab Zuweila, and extends into the favored western part of town where Suq al- Qawadis was located. It was a major thoroughfare. The houses to the north, interspersed with gardens of palm and fruit trees that grew profusely in western Cairo, were much lower leaving Lane's house open to the air. A prevailing northwestern breeze almost always arose in the evenings to be caught by the malqaf on the roof and funneled through the rooms below, bringing welcome relief even on sweltering summer evenings. It projected over the street with windows on the front and sides; a divan ran the length of the northern wall.
