Doors

Inspired by a post on Teresa Evangeline’s blog, I took some photos of doors on our farm.  I really should have taken the time to edit, annotate and better organize these.

  1. Bill, These are absolutely wonderful. Ever door tells a story and invites new stories to take place. Each of this images has character and great detail. Love the piece of wood used to hold the clasp. Necessity is the Mother of Invention… And, I’m so glad you included the horse and goat looking out of a doorway. It’s a very cool photo.You have some wonderful old buildings on your farm. I also have old license plates. They are such great additions to the structures. Thank you for posting these and for the mention.

      Thanks for giving me the idea Teresa. For a day I snapped a photo of every door I saw on the farm (I use the camera on my phone which is why the quality is poor). The first set is from an old abandoned house on the farm. The license plate was nailed to the bottom of the door to patch a hole. The second set was taken at the old farm house built in the 1880s. Next are from our barn and henhouse (I had a lot more of these type, but didn’t use them all). The next three are from another old house on the place, which we’re now using for storage. The next three are from old tobacco barns and the last one is the front door of our house. Note the holes in some of the old doors. These were finger holes, to enable a person to pull the door open.

    I had wondered about the holes – thanks for the explanation. And I like some of those old latches as much as the doors. I’m trying to remember where I still was using one of those “lift latches”. It had a piece of rope tied to it… I just can’t remember.

    Is that an old doorbell I see? The kind that you ring by turning a key on the outside?

      Yes. Good observation. If you look at the picture of the screen door (the first of the white house photos) you can see the brass knob beneath the window.

      When our contractor re-wired the house for us, he installed a modern doorbell, assuming we’d want one. It still bugs me to see that glowing doorbell light at night and it sure doesn’t fit in on the old place–which already had a perfectly good doorbell.

  3. What an absolutely fantastic farm you have! I love every single one of your doors. I can almost feel the history.
    Have a super weekend and thanks again for popping past my blog.
