    If not for the growing number of maniacs in the morning and early evening who engaged in the activity known as Djo-Ging, which had replaced calisthenics by an open factory window with a view of the factory grounds, at first glance there was little to suggest that the wheel of history turned here too.

    Re: Replace

    People (characterized as "maniacs") used to perform a type of exercise called calisthenics in the place the sentence refers to. I'm not sure whether that place is indoors behind an open window, or outdoors, visible from an open window.
    I am not a teacher.
