The latch on the way out the side door of the church. I can’t imagine this is a anywhere near as old as the church. For the obvious reason, you can still get all sorts of new-made ancient-looking hardware here. But it’s identical to the one on the front door (which isn’t used every day), so I imagine it’s pretty old.

I get a kick out of the very old things still in daily use here.

Old stuff, made well, is useful, often for centuries!

Hey; *I’m* old and still in use everyday. Maybe not very *useful* but in use at least.

Yup. I’ve always been more than glad to give my opinion and/or advice for ANY situation or item.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
