Another shot from the interior of the Hastings Building, Port Townsend, WA. I was attracted to the random pattern of the paint on the wallpaper.
Well, there isn’t any lipstick left on these, but I still would be nervous using them. Not sure why they all ended up lined up on this interior window sill.
Found inside the Hastings Building, Port Townsend, WA.
This window sill was just awful, but I liked the detail work on the window pull. The design was matched by all the hinges in the building.

This old lawnmower is one of the few items left inside the building. It reminded me of my youth when I would push a mower similar to this around the neighborhood looking to make some extra money during the summer. The one I used wasn’t so rusty.
This one seems to have a board attached… not sure what the purpose was. Either to assist with the basket that catches the grass … or maybe to use the mower (with the handle in reverse) as a hand truck (?)
The vacant Hastings Building has an empty feeling. One can image that at night the halls are visited by ghosts of the past. But in the mid-day sun, they just look empty.
An excellent example of fine woodworking from the interior of The Hastings building in Port Townsend, WA. You just don’t find work like this anymore.
