The Back Gate...

at this historical property

is heavy duty...manufactured by Stewart Iron Works many years ago...

an old door set into a deep wall maintains security...

fashion blinds horizontal and iron bars vertical are indicators of the previous use of this property

now functioning as a beautiful and interesting bed and breakfast. 

Linking to Good Fences . Go take a look for interesting fences and gates around the world.
