The door hinges removed.  It appears that they have some sort of stain on them, covering the original brass finish. The mortise lock, removed and opened for cleaning and oiling.  Surprisingly, all of the springs were intact. Mortise, reassembled and the faceplate cleaned.
We found some sash lift hardware that is almost the same style as the original sash locks.  While the original windows didn’t have any lift hardware, we decided to go ahead and add them.
Restored window, with the new exterior paint color, before the storm window was reinstalled.
