Now, “dot dash dash” is Morse code for the letter W. Here, however, it is three doorbells of two different makes, set on a residential front gate with no helpful address numbers. If you look closely on the leftmost of these, you’ll see the faded remnant of a series of numerals. One more rainy season and they’ll be entirely gone. The Morse code is probably the most hopeful interpretation: You arrive at the gate and communicate with the inhabitant by tapping out a message with the arcane alphabet.
