Thoughtful Thursday


 
An old doorknob on an old door, located inside an old hotel here in Smalltownland. 
 
It can make one wonder just how many people have passed through this door.

  2. This brings back lots of memories. These locks took a key called a "skeleton" key and the same key would work in any lock that looked like this one. One skeleton key was like a master key for every single house in my hometown. The doorknob is like those we had at home too. Lots of memories here.

  7. beautiful photo...the house I lived in as a kid had some door knobs and locks like that...ours all took skeleton keys...a skeleton key would open your locks and most of your neighbors locks...one wonders why they bothered

  8. I LOVE old door knobs. My great great grandmother's farmhouse burned down, but I have the doorknob from it. Imagining how many times that marble knob was turned blows my mind.

  16. This reminds me of my grandmother's door that was between her kitchen and living room...which I always thought was a strange place for a door. Skeleton keys...wow..so long ago.

  18. The lock on our back door looks a lot like this. And it still works. And we still use it.
