This is a gate on the campus of Salve Regina Unversity in Newport, Rhode Island.

The gate has steps on either side leading up to the top where there is a single seat. I was never able to find out about this particular gate and I remain curious about this oddity. Chances are, it is something as simple as a gate keepers seat.

I've heard of gate houses and security gates but never a gate where the guard sit on top. I would like to have seen a closer view and if possible, a view from inside the gate showing where that stairway meets the ground.

It is always good when photographing something of this nature to do a distant shot showing the subject in context with its environment. Then either zoom in or move in to capture some of the details that are not clear in the distant shot.

Cal, here is another view. If you look through the gate itself you can see the steps start at the ground and then take a turn towards the outside steps.
