In Nathaniel Hawthorne?s book The House of Seven Gable?s symbolism is eloquently used to enhance the story being told, by giving us a deeper insight into the author?s intentions in writing the story.

Branded as Home Tools: It appears that professional-tradesmen did not want to use the same tools that housewives used at homes (Black & Decker). Tradesmen viewed Black & Decker tools more for

At this time, locks were made of wood. They were large and crude in design; yet their principle of operation was the forerunner of the modern pin-tumbler locks of today.
