Door: a. A movable structure used to close off an entrance, typically consisting of a panel that swings on hinges or that slides or rotates.
Gate: 1. A structure that can be swung, drawn, or lowered to block an entrance or a passageway.
Hmmm, these two definitions sound rather similar to me so with the authority of dictionaries behind me, I offer you these three gate-doors from Plombières les Bains. Just think of a gate as an outside door with open windows. These are not door-ky, but rather they a-door-n their space. I heartily en-doors them. 🙂 Happy Thursday!
Door to ancient Roman baths. I would have loved to get in to see these early baths, but alas, the door was closed.
Plombières is filled with photos of what the town looked like in earlier days, photos often taken from the same spot and looking completely recognizable. Here’s a photo of the inside of the Roman baths “back in the day”, although post-ancient-Romans.
