The great photo of the PIA 747 on approach to Karachi on the home page has me puzzled.

If you mean the cylinder right above the side window, lying on it's side, then it would be the escape rope to go through the side window.

Thank you Amc.
Very helpful of you.
|Quoting 747classic (Reply 7):|
This is a movable holder for locking one of the standard Boeing (green) sun shades.
The LH holder can be moved to any window at the LH side by a sort of rail system above the windows
The same rail system is installed above the RH windows, the RH holder is visible aft of the F/O position above window R3.
