Sobering Fence for a Serious Building...
There is nothing inviting about this 1884 iron fence. It surrounds the historic jail I wrote about a few weeks ago, called "Eye on the Prisoner".
Built 128 years ago, it is still standing proudly around the jail.
Somehow it managed to survive the scrap drives of WWII.
The iron fence was ordered from Philadelphia for $2,074. That comes to $16.00 a year!
This rosette, on the gate, is the only frill I could find on the fence.
Today, I'm connecting with Jan n Jer's Friday Fences.....be sure and check their post.
