The Pencil Sharpener Behind Cellar Door Mystery

Posted by on July 1, 2012

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
