Old School Hardware

Washing public transportation off my hands before enjoying beer and a burger at Seattle's oldest bar, I noticed and appreciated the immaculate restroom furnished with straightforward painted plywood compartments. A  simple barrel bolt secured a door, and I realized that piece of hardware is the lock of last resort in many a far more pretentious facility.

I'd rather see one good cast bolt that's seen generations of service rather than a cheapjack one mounted in a sad column of ragged lacunae left from over-designed failures -30-
