The house I grew up in had a pencil sharpener on the cellar door.
The house I currently live in had a pencil sharpener on the wall
behind the cellar door when we bought it. Still there. (see photo)
I’ve mentioned this to several people and the their childhood homes (translation: 1970s and earlier)
had pencil sharpeners on the walls behind the cellar doors.
That’s all I got.
If you had a pencil sharpener around your cellar door, please post on the OSR Facebook page, along with photo or any thoughts you have on this practice. I can’t put it into words, but there is something Old School about this.
Keep It Old School
