From the book JOURNEY IN GREECE by Antoine Bon, published 1949 by Kauffmann Publishers, Athens Greece. This book is apparently a reprint of a 1938 publication.
From the book:
"METEORA: Monastery of Hagia Triada, founded in 1438, is one of those monasteries built as early as the 14-th century on sandstone rocks, with vertical walls - and called Meteora - to be safe from brigands."
A contemporary color photograph of Meteora here online along with a brief history of the area known for its cliff-top monasteries.
