Good Fences ~ Edition 123 ~


I found this unusual fence in the Mystic area of Connecticut 
Although it looks like a chain, the chain links are constructed of wood.

"Wood Chain Fence"
"Designed Built and Erected by Albert Bonamo, Age 73"
1954

A look back, 
I wondered about how long it took to construct this wood fence.
I wish that information had been included with the information on the sign.

Sharing today with my good friend

Wooden links... how interesting. They will never rust.

Really different and a great chain link fence made from wood! That must have taken years to construct and assemble and it has stood the test of time.
Have a great day, Debbie!

It's a perfect fence for that seafaring vibe. I'm sure it took quite some time to make.

That is just too cool, wow I do bet that took a lot of time! We went there while we lived in Jersey but didn't see that, it looks like you had just gorgeous weather while you were there!

I'd bet that there is a story about him and the fence somewhere on the internet. Maybe in the town's history. It certainly is very unique.

TexWisGirl said...

that is SO cool! my sweet uncle, who was a woodsmith, once carved an 8 foot section of chain-link out of one contiguous piece of wood - carving each link already linked in to the next piece, etc. it was amazing!

Linda said...

Neat! Thanks for including the sign.

Bruce Clark said...

This is my kind of fence! I'm with you, I wonder how long he worked on it. I love your low point of view on the fence.

That's got to be the neatest fenec I've ever seen! I just think about the work involved in carving that, and I'm astonished. What a great find.
