The Keys To The Tavern, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia


These keys to the King's Arms Tavern hang conveniently inside the door. The doors on the colonial buildings still have authentic locks which use the large keys.

Old keys and locks are beautiful works of art and so intricate. It's good to know they're still in use.

A very well-composed photo; good work. Do you both take the pictures? I don't remember the pegs the keys are hanging on from our visit to Williamsburg, but I'm sure I must have seen them. We'll have to come back one day soon. Jim

Nice! I just a bunch of old and large keys in an antique shop the other day. I was surprised at how big the keys were. I assume it was for leverage.
