A door story

Came upon this nifty blog called Vintage Found Photo Stories via this post about a Masonic door knocker. The mere phrase makes my mind conjure crazy contraptions. A hand-shaped knocker that slaps you around—sure you want to go in there, how about a little hazing first? A doortop fez whose tassel you yank to announce your presence? Or how about the eyebell?
