Dated Doorbell

Old architecture is like eye-candy for me. Things from the past make me feel insignificant.  I dig that.

Home #2 on the Baltimore tour presents a delicious, antique doorbell within its purple door.

I researched the date on the bell and believe it to be an 1891 rotary doorbell.

The electric doorbell was invented by Joseph Henry in 1831.

Damn him!
