Umbrella lock © Evelyn Howard 2010

A devise to keep ones umbrella safe. There is a key which you take with you once the umbrella is locked into place.

Did you see a geisha perform? I love that first photo! And really interesting how you focused on that umbrella rack :D

@Kaori: Unfortunately not a geisha. The little maiko was dancing on stage - part of a cultural show we went to. She's a sweet girl.

I find the the umbrella rack interesting. It's not common in Australia, and I've never seen in anywhere else.
