FF: College Entrance

Category: Beautiful Doors,Egress,Fixed-it FridayLori @ 10:26 am Comments (6)

Tony Calistro of Ring’s End sent me these photos of some beautiful doors at a college entrance – 4 inches thick and over 100 years old.  Amazing, right??


It’s too bad someone at this facility didn’t ask for help BEFORE coming up with these Fixed-it Friday locking solutions.  🙁

    The Phillips head screws in the escutcheon indicate someone worked on this lock after 1936 and probably fitted a bit key to it. Too bad nobody took the time to find it or had yet another made! Absolutely horrific butchering of these fine old doors!
