This was Mrs. Bradley's of Warren VT. 1700 people live there today so I wonder what to population was in 1880. The 'before' pictures are posted here, about a month ago. The body is zinc covered and the box is 5/8 inch wood. The metal was so rusted it had to be painted. The latches have the patent date, July 73. The slats are hard wood. The lock is solid brass. And the best .....I once bought a bunch of about 15 keys on eBay and ..yes, one fit this lock! WOW, like hitting the lottery. Another fun project.
