These were taken in the historic Hastings building in downtown Port Townsend. The building is not open to the public (except for shops on the ground floor) and its future is uncertain at this time. Hopefully, it will be renovated and the wonderful woodwork restored. In the meantime, some of the mess is visually interesting.
I was inside an historic building in downtown Port Townsend, WA taking photos. I took a snap of the light fixture that was in one of the rooms (there was no electric power connected). It wasn’t until much later that I realized that there was a bug on one of the bulbs. It now draws my attention so that I hardly notice the rest of the image.
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 (?)
