Lilly : Not sure I want you to see how shabby this place is.
Ronnie : Oh, that's okay, Lilly, I'm an understanding kind of guy.

I guess open the right door with your fingers?

(from Ronnie) No, no, Joe : things are not that bad. I keep a screwdriver nearby on a string.
Today I'll go with 'L' at least it's got a handle. What I think is startling is the fact that the cross member of the door and the height of the lock is exactly the same on both doors.

(from Ronnie) I'd have to ask a tradesman but it may be that there is a 'recommended' place to fit a lock in a door like these. Good point, Observing.

maybe borrow Lilly's doorknob to open the door?

Both are vintage character doors, but if you put them in my house I'd probably want to paint them. What funny creatures we are. They would then lose their character!!!

I have very similar doors and locks in my house - I wonder what era these are.
13 Jul 2008 12:02am
(from Ronnie) Well, my off-white door is an original fitting from 1932 and I had replaced them with plain doors in the 1970's. Fortunately, I kept these old ones and am in the process of putting this one back !
Amazing they are the same size and quite opposite with the dark & light as well as one has the knob and one does not, but i figured that one out quickly as it was quite a challenge to open the door on the right.

I love the contrast of older and new, the old obviously wins as it is the one still functioning, and has the most charm and character!

As always, the comments are as enigmatic as the photo...

Lilly has chosen a more political manner ofcourse . ;)

Excellent merging. I like the textures and humor here!
13 Jul 2008 5:06am
hmmm... but where are the keys?
13 Jul 2008 7:15am
This is fantastic! Very well done :)

hahaha!Talking abt latches like this,it reminded me of a time when i was deep in thought and left my house keys hanging at the key latch,gates open wide.When i came back,i had a fright,thinking my house had been broken into.Gosh,that was a lesson learnt for being distracted!:)

(from Ronnie) hee hee . . yes, moments like that have us doing a real fast reality check : "Did I do that?". Thanks for stopping by, Tyan.
a pefect combination - great colors
13 Jul 2008 5:37pm
Fabulous! Love the symmetry in this one.
13 Jul 2008 7:50pm
I guess we should try to go in the left door. Or at least that's the one we can get in...
14 Jul 2008 6:51am
Do you have any "Open Doo" event ? :-)
14 Jul 2008 9:44am
Cool - bring your own doorknob! :-D
14 Jul 2008 11:56am
Ah, for the days when you could look through key holes.
14 Jul 2008 4:17pm
cool shots -- two doors with character. though i'd probably trade character for a nice (or just functional) doorknob. ;) on the plus side for Ronnie, at least it's still made out of real wood

I have a sneaking suspicion that these two doors could be related. In fact, they could be long lost siblings.
PS Word verification for this image is 'DrHam'... ponderous...

(from Ronnie) I can assure you they have never met but it did surprise us that the geometry matched so well ! Thanks for the Comment, Sash.
This is really very funny! Great work!
