Back when I wrote the South of Broad Blog, I compiled a list of my 5 favorite things about the South of Broad neighborhood. One of those 5 things was Wrought Iron Gates. I remember struggling to cull my list down because there were so many wonderful gates in this historic neighborhood. Ultimately, many of the gates I photographed would go into the blog vault for a rainy day.
Well folks....it's your lucky day. And it's not even raining! I have dusted off those old gate pix and taken a few more. Here are 12 gates of the South of Broad neighborhood........................
Some gates protect fancy cars.
Other's a secret garden.
Some gates have a better head of hair than I do.
And other's have a better beard.
Some gates are huge!
Some are really skinny.
Some gates have round arches.
Other's have gothic ones.
Some gates sing a song.
Some take the mail.
Some gates say "come on in."
Other's say "stay out!"
Did I say a dozen?.......how about a baker's dozen?
Special thanks to my crew for helping me on my expedition.
