It's All About Craftsmanship

When in the park the other day this iron gate-hinge 
caught my attention.

Probably the rust was what did it for me.....I love this colour/texture.

Then I got to thinking about the age of this ironwork and gate pillar.

I think it is probably about 150 years old and made by the British
when they were manning this fortress back in the mid 1800's.

I think there is lesson here, namely, one has to look far and wide for quality work today.
I don't imagine most things purchased today would have the 'shelf-life' of this hinge.
