ABC Wednesday - E is for Entrance
E is for Entrance............
This is quite a foreboding entrance way - but there is a reason for that
This brick piece of architecture is the entrance to a fort that was built back in the days before the American Revolution.
This gate comes down from the top - and there is another one on the other side, or inside of this structure.
It is controlled by wooden gears and cogs that are designed along the inside of the roof.
It was too dark to get any decent photos of them, but they were truly quite the work of art.
This fort is right beside the entrance to the river that leads to the city, and there are several more of these forts along both sides of the river further up.
Most of them were in use right up through World War II - protecting the harbor and keeping an ever watchful eye.
They are all closed now - open only seasonally and with very limited viewing.
What history they hold!
This is the eighth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
