During our Emirates flight from Houston to Dubai I discovered "Downton Abbey".   The head housekeeper carries a wad of keys with her, and when we arrived in this house the thought of how many skeleton keys I would need to carry depressed me.  It takes all three of these to lock up the front doors at night.

 This batch is for the kitchen doors, and servant's quarters off the kitchen courtyard.

Every single door has it's own key... and there are a LOT of doors here.

This box has slowly been whittled down as we determine what each of these keys will open.  It is like living in a mystery.

  1. You DO realize that having all those keys is a hipster's dream right? ;)
