Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door

Angel Door Knocker, Warren St., Charleston, S.C.

I've been carrying around a page from the Post & Courier on Decorative Door Knockers in my backpack, meaning to eventually track down the locations. Most of them of course are on mansions in the lower peninsula. Then, to my happy surprise I spotted the angelic gal right around the block from my house. She may not date back as far as some of the ones in the article but she has a certain rusty charm.

The hard copy version of the article has all the pictures but apparently the online version does not. Sorry. This photographer's site has some of them.

I love Michael Nocher's work! We have 3 of his prints framed in our living room. He has a great eye for Charleston charm & beauty :)
