Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below.
Not Norm, not Joey, it’s me, Dan. I’m filling in for Norm this week, but I wasn’t sure what Norm to be. I’ve cast him in a wide variety of roles, from railroad conductor, to gourmet chef, to Ring Master, to real estate developer. I think my favorite role is “Founder of the Feast” (of doors, not a reference to Scrooge). Norm brings us an opportunity each week to celebrate doors, tall, odd, old and beautiful, and we are lucky to have him. So, when he asked for a few weeks off, I was happy to oblige.
Oh, doors, I almost forgot. I have to have doors today!
I’m going to wrap up my tour of the Ann Street Historic District in Hartford, Connecticut. So far, we’ve seen the synagogue that’s for sale, the church that has survived fire and rain, the hotel that dodged the wrecking ball and the first ever electric plant serving a city. In between these interesting and special buildings, is a smattering of non-descript addresses. Some of them are special to Hartford. Some are special to me. All have managed to survive, although some have seen better days.
I’ve also included a few newer doors that I collected while attending a ballgame in Hartford a couple of weeks ago. I’m giving baseball a rest for a while, but I thought I could add these to the mix.
The stories, where they are known, are in the captions. Check out the gallery, click on any photo to start the show, but first, for those of you in a hurry to share your own doors, let me finish my administrative duties.
