Antique Metal Roller Shutters in Lviv

Lviv still has quite a few Austrian- and Polish-era metal roller shutters, which cover windows and doors of old storefronts. Some of the shutters are still used; most, however, look as if they haven’t been opened in decades. The panels with the locks are stamped with the manufacturer’s mark – typically the company’s name and location, some even with a street address, such as the company N. Bielicki Lwów, which was located on ul. Gródecka 43 (Horodotska St.).

this panel is upside down - I think because several old shutters were used to patch up this door as seen in picture below
