One of my favorite finds, ever. I did not notice the inscription until I downloaded it to my computer. Why didn't I look on the other side? What kind of strange, funny or sad story could have been behind the placement of this lock? Even more curious, what could lead to the trouble taken to inscribe it and paint it nail-polish red? Make up your own story, if you wish. (Later, mystery solved: it is part of an art project: HERE. Thanks for the link, Crits!)

Hi Diane. I've seen another photo of this lock in Flickr by peter124u Peter Young, but with no explanation of the words.

Maybe he didn't notice them! Thanks for the info, it will be fun to take a look at someone else's.
