Welcome to Thursday Doors! This is a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos, drawings, or other images or stories from around the world. If you’d like to join us, simply create your own Thursday Doors post each (or any) week and then share a link to your post in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). If you like, you can add our badge to your post.
I want to begin with a message to Thursday Doors participants. I have added a feature to the link extract so that I can make the Sunday Recap a little more interesting. By attaching hashtags to the link (URL) you place in your comment, you can inform readers of the Sunday Recap of some keywords that describe your post. The same kind of words you might use as tags. The feature is in its infancy, so there are a few requirements. They are listed below:
Hashtags must be appended to your link and the resulting string must be contiguous. Example https://nofacilities.com/2022/02/17/buckingham-square-district/#Hartford#Connecticut#Bricks is correct.
On the other hand, https://nofacilities.com/2022/02/17/buckingham-square-district/#Hartford #Connecticut #Bricks would fail.
Hashtags cannot include spaces. If you feel you need to use a tag that includes more than one word, please separate the words with an underscore character or a hyphen, , i.e. #historic_district or #historic-district
If you are linking your post by posting a pingback, you will need to include the hashtags at the end of your blog title. WordPress will concatenate those onto the pingback link.
The hashtags will not interfere with your link, and they will be stripped out when the Recap is processed.
Please keep in mind that the resulting tags need to fit in a column in the table that serves to display the recap. For now, the tags will replace the blogger location (which has not been adopted widely). I would appreciate it if you would give this a try, as it will help me test this feature.
As the title suggests, I have returned to the Buckingham Square district on Hartford’s south end.
Most of the pictures in the gallery are from Buckingham St and Capitol Avenue. I have included the last few photos from the National Registry of Historic Places Nomination form. I’ve included some pictures from slightly outside the district, but on the same streets as they extend to the Capitol area.
