    Remotely operated entrance gate patented by Isaac Burkholder, of Farmersville, Pennsylvania, patent #377,479, February 7, 1888.

    18" x 37" x 10" folds up to 18" x 4" x 10" for easier transport. Before and after restoration photos. A good cleaning and replacement of missing cables and miscellaneous parts brought it back to operating condition.

      Haven't figured out why, but I really enjoy the salesman samples posted on CW. Amazes me how imaginative these people were back in those days. A few I haven't figured out but don't dwell on them. Thanks for your contributions. How did you get into this & better yet, where do you find them?

      Blunderbuss2. Thanks for your comments. Like you I am fascinated with the creativity of our ancestors. I have been a barbed wire collector for over 50 years and as you know every fence has to have a gate. My love for all things fence and all things small led me to pursue a collection of gates. I have acquired them from fellow collectors, EBay, and other online auctions. My engineering background is also a factor as restoring them to operating condition is a real challenge.
