Taiwan Security System
Some time ago I posted a photo from Sarj that showed how broken glass was sometimes embedded in the mortar on top of walls around homes. Here's another shot -- this one from Les -- of another one of those burglar deterrents. I don't know how effective they were, but they certainly looked dangerous enough.
Back in 1963, a friend and I caught a hop to Taipei from Kadena Air Base, Okinawa. That was the first time I'd ever seen these things and the message was pretty clear that burglary just might be a problem. I think they were still around when I returned in 1973.
