Stable doors

1930s garage/barn

Most of the houses in Downey (based on my unofficial observation) were built in the 1950s or later. Two-car garages with automatic garage door openers are the norm.

But once in a while, I spot a building, such as this one built in 1934, that reminds me that Downey once was home to 1930s-era automobiles, that garages originally looked more like barns, and that it was doors like these that were the subject of the saying, "Don't lock the stable door after the horse has been stolen."

I wonder, is there an old hayloft inside?
