Fiddling with locks in Chinatown

By David Owens

Many locksmiths will fiddle with your locks.

And some people can play the fiddle.

But Archie Wood can do both.

When Archie take a break you may hear him pick up his fiddle and pick out a tune.

He once played on the Grand ol' Opry.

At 84 years young Archie may be the oldest  bike-riding, fiddle-playing  locksmith in California. Maybe anywhere.

He is part of the uniquer and rich tapestry of people that make Chinatown in Fresno a fascinating place.Security is his business and he has the experience of a master  locksmith.
