When strolling through old European towns, I love to look at antique and renaissance hardware, especially handles, knobs and pulls on old doors. There is always a story and rich history behind them
These doorhandles go back hundreds of years, some to the Middle ages. (some pictures I took while strolling through Passau)
This old door and lock below from 1585 has a historic significance. It is in the Townhall of Dettelbach, where my paternal grandfather served as a Mayor in 1950’s.
The lock mechanism from a medieval door lock. I took this picture at at an old fortress chapel below
