A bared window

I have been off for some time (my pc crashed - think it was the mother board) and it has taken me a LONG time to recover. But anyway, just a quick question - how do I create a bared window that the prisoner (innocent) can look through and watch the world go by?

The built-in Inform Recipe Book contains a section on windows (section 3.6).

I think the example you want is 217, “Dinner Is Served.”

To handle the “watching the world go by” side of your question, example Port Royal 4 does exactly that.
