  1. Curious…it looks like something else, maybe a bannister, being used as a fence…

  2. I love this fence. I just want to give it a hug! (Okay, not really. But I do feel quite curious about the history behind this fence. Was it built by someone who wasn’t all that handy? Did the ground sink? It looks like maybe parts of it were replaced.) Oh, there are stories this fence could tell, I’m sure of it!)

    One of the interesting aspects of fences is that, while originally meant to be functional, by marking boundaries and preventing straying livestock, they became ornamental as well. If one thinks of fences as functional, it’s funny to see a fence that only covers, say, a few yards on either side of a gate.

    My home town’s “new” cemetery was built with a fence of stone pillars connected by two thick wooden railings. Probably it was partly ornamental, partly to keep out neighbors’ livestock, for the town was mostly farmland in those days. Since then, the surrounding area’s gone to houses and woods, and the rails have decayed and are now often missing. So there are these stone posts marking the old boundary, but they no longer serve any real purpose. They just look a bit quaint.

  4. It seems like it had interesting construction in the first place, given the weird top board.
