Saugus Ironworks Visitor Center Door

Saugus Ironworks Visitor Center Door (click to enlarge)

Anyone who has visited a historic site from the 1600’s or so knows that the number of nails in a door is a measure of the wealth of the family living in that house.  Here is the door to the Saugus Ironworks Visitor Center.  As an ironworks making nails, I guess one would expect the owner to have lots of nails in their door.

I originally envisioned a black and white conversion for this image.  After trying that, I decided that I preferred the reddish/brownish tinge on the door and left it that way.  The red tinge actually shows up better if you click on the image.
