"When I was almost six and Jem was nearly ten, our summertime boundaries

(within calling distance of Calpurnia) were Mrs. Henry Lafayette Dubose’s house

two doors to the north of us, and the Radley Place three doors to the south." (Chapter One)

"The house was low, was once white with a deep front porch and green shutters, but had long ago darkened to the color of the slate-gray yard around it. Rain-rotted shingles drooped over the eaves of the veranda; oak trees kept the sun away. The remains of a picket drunkenly guarded the front yard— a “swept” yard that was never swept— where johnson grass and rabbit-tobacco grew in abundance." (Chapter One)

"The shutters and doors of the Radley house were closed on Sundays, another

thing alien to Maycomb’s ways: closed doors meant illness and cold weather

only." (Chapter One)
