A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Barn Loft Window

I’ve always been intrigued by the homemade wooden handles and latches you find on old barns/sheds etc.  To me they represent in some small way the self reliance and ingenuity of older generations.

The image that follows shows a barn loft window, complete with a rudimentary but effective latching mechanism, shot along Broad Run Road in Roane County, WV.
