My half term Luxemburg trip

Trier – the oldest city in Germany
 

This city gate was built by the Romans in AD200 and is the oldest of its type still standing. The city was an important trading centre.









 


A very large and interesting press – the screws were cantilevered and the gutter for juice ran along the length of this double ended, ornately carved piece.








A beautiful basket twist door handle in ¾” square bar from Notre Dame Cathedral in Luxemburg City.


One of the many things I love about so many of the old stone building are all the tool marks left by the makers.
