Before moving to NY, seeing an old lock someplace random had no meaning. Now I stop and look for a date. Every.

  1. @livingsexuality during WW1, it was a tradition for a couple to get married before the soldier or sailor shipped off, to lock a padlock on a bridge and throw the key into the river. With time they would engrave their initials and the wedding date on the lock. They are called Love locks.
