For the month of August, a series of guest posters will be filling in on DWL with daily posts. This week’s posts come to you from the talented folks of Studio 254: designer and illustrator Will Bryant, illustrator and educator Kate Bingaman-Burt, designer Clifton Burt, designer Tina Snow Le and artist, designer and educator Jason Sturgill. Enjoy!
One of my favorite things here in Portland that a lot of people don’t know about is the unmarked windowless building that is Kidd’s Toy Museum. It houses the private toy collection of Mr. Frank Kidd which is made up of mainly toys from the late 1800s and early 1900s. Another thing in his collection is a bunch of beautiful railroad locks which I hadn’t seen before…so I went hunting for more.
It turns out there’s a whole lock scene that I wasn’t aware of before this.
I now have a thing for locks, thanks Internet.
