Since we seem to be on an antique doors and hardware run, I thought you’d like to see these oldies but goodies.  They were spotted at the Shatford Centre in Penticton, British Columbia.  The building was recently renovated and the main entrance doors and hardware were replaced, and the process was chronicled in detail on (just search for “doors”).  I got in touch with the project manager for the renovation to make sure they didn’t throw the hardware away, and she said, “we consider these archival pieces of the building’s history and would never throw them out.”  She also said that some of the existing panic devices that were not replaced during the renovation are still functioning!

So, who can tell me how old these are?

Thank you to Drew Makepeace for allowing me to post these photos.
