London photo of the day: interesting doors


Interesting doors. (In Hackney.)

    Where I used to live in Upton Park, there were one or two people who thought they needed barred doors like that, and windows too, and everyone else in the street thought they were crazy for living in prison before they’d been caught. I always wondered what they’d do in a fire.

    There’s lots of window gates like that on the window over the fire escape in NYC. They are often needed but the fire code requires that there is a quick release, non-key-requiring mechanism that opens them from the inside. (Plenty of people, though, buy cheaper ones not meant for fire exits and, yes, they are screwed in a fire.)
