Closeup of latch on inside door of St George's Anglican Church
Doesn't the latch appear to have been used many times over the past 130 years? Built in 1877, the year the railroad reached Jackson's Point, St. George's Anglican Church overlooks Lake Simcoe, a popular summer destination for Torontarians (people who live in Toronto).

This very practical item looks like an amazing old artwork in macro! Great photos!
Really good! Perfect.
Great photo's, can you just imagine how many hands turned the key and opened that lock through the years?
I love old latches...locks..whatever you want to call them.
As the saying goes, they don't make 'em like that anymore.
Now that is a latch and lock! My goodness, what tales that could tell!
If we had a contest for the best photos of Anglican church doors, you'd have a lock on it!
130 years worth of use, I'd say that was an EXTREMELY WELL MADE lock! WoW!
That latch and the wood behind it just seem to ooze age! Just beautiful to look at.
I love visiting you and seeing what wonderful things you have discovered.
Old and therefore lovely.
Oh I love the unusual shots - I love this one - so much detail!! Great shot!!! Sarah
so ancient looking
A wonderful latch! I love how stylish older handles and knobs are!
(I'm missing out on Macro Monday each time. And I love macro shooting, but I just forget it anyway...)
Interesting to think about what each individual was expecting to find when opening this door over the years...
God bless you!
Sharp, sharp, sharp. Tripod used?
Thank you for visiting!
Благодаря за посещението!
I like those old and faithfuls locks! The color is very bright and the latch is perfectly fitting!
Isn't it amazing what things we capture with our digital cameras?
I hope the wear on the latch means that it got lots of use from people going into the church.
This is gorgeous. I so enjoy old hand made things. Especially when they endure time. Wonderful photos.
I bet it is that old. Wonderful craftsmanship. Look at thet wood too. Great macro. MB
PS. Yep, I came home.
Mt. baker is 10,000ft. second highest (I think) in the state. Mt. Rainier is 14, 800 ft. So the big mts have snow all year round. MB
Great captures. I absolutely love them
I love the texture and warmth of this picture; the beautiful contrast of wood and metal.
I love the wear patterns!! Your photos show them so clearly!!
