Welcome to Thursday Doors, 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 your link in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time).
I take full responsibility for the chopped photos and the glare. My brother is a doors aficionado enabler. He would gladly have backed up or turned around for better shots. At some point in the coming weeks, I will share some buildings that we searched for and where he parked and let me walk around. I was able to find a little bit about two buildings in today’s gallery. Below is what I found.
Slovene National Benefit Society’sSNPJ.org Website
Founded on April 6, 1904, SNPJ was initially incorporated as Slovenska Narodna Podporna Jednota, which translates to Slovene National Benefit Society—The Slovene National Benefit Society enjoys a history that stretches back more than a century. Founded on April 6, 1904, SNPJ was initially incorporated as Slovenska Narodna Podporna Jednota, which translates to Slovene National Benefit Society in English. In honor of the founders we have retained our Slovenian initials, and our society is now best known by its original Slovenian acronym, “SNPJ.”
Initially organized to offer affordable life insurance and disability coverage to early Slovenian immigrants, the SNPJ founders established a unique, centralized financial fund that allowed the Society to develop and grow rapidly. Of the thousand or so life insurance companies and fraternal benefit societies operating in America, fewer than a hundred have been in business as long as we have.
Roxian Theatre – McKees Rocks, PAMcKees Rocks Historical Society
1929 – Opened as a 1,500-seat vaudeville playhouse called “The Roxian.” 1931 – 1979 – Three years after opening, movies were incorporated into the business model and continued through the remainder of the Chartiers Avenue theater’s 80-year history.
I hope you enjoy these and the other photos in the gallery. I want to thank all the participants, and I encourage everyone to check out the doors assembled here from around the world.
