綠色鐵閘 gate

2012.10.27 | 薄扶林道  pok fu lam road

不知道這印刷廠還在運作沒有。但這星期六經過時,大閘緊拉。好方便我替它照照相。今天的香港,已經沒有新商鋪採用中間向兩方對開横的鐵閘了,最愛上端不知是來透氣還是裝飾的雕花,還有老實地打招牌的鋪頭名字,縷空且具書法的手工,美的手藝。

not sure if the printing-house is still operating. a saturday morning i walked pass it and was drawn by the strong but lonesome iron gate.

this type of gate – in iron, with simple and pretty pattern on the top and having the shop name engraved – was common decades ago. i doubt one can have a new gate made these days because ironsmith seems to be disappeared from this city. luckily for us who appreciate its beauty, it is of quality and can stand long.
