Big city gold: Chicago

Posted: September 9, 2021 in Uncategorized

Downtown Chicago sports gold in these revolving doors. Don’t you love revolving doors? I remember going round and round in them as a child. One of the best bits of revolving door humor come during “The Return of the Pink Panther.” Do click here to enjoy it. It’s worth a few minutes of your time. I think I’ll also enter it for Thursday Doors, although I may have two links as I forgot Dan’s Labor Day break and posted last week as well. Here’s the link for the Wyoming doors from last week.

    Those are perfect doors, Janet. I think I’ve seen them in person a few years ago. I love revolving doors. Thanks for remembering Thursday Doors.

  2. I remember being afraid to go through the revolving door the first time.
    I must have been 6 years old. Of course, eventually I did have a fun time
    with them. It was at Macy’s in Manhattan. We had gone to see the Macy’s
    day parade. Fun …!!!
    These golden doors are beautiful and a great reminder of how somethings
    change while others become vintage classics. Great find. Janet.

    • Do you remember when elevators had someone inside who pushed the buttons for the floors people wanted and opened/shut the doors? Elevators also often had attractive doors or the gates that had to be shut as well as the doors. Guess we’re dating ourselves, aren’t we? 🙂

      • LOL Yes, I do remember those elevators. I had a friend who lived in a building with the gate that had to be closed first. When I was about 6 I went with my mom to manhattan – we went there a lot – I was on the elevator with a man who operated the elevator. He had a uniform and white gloves. I told my mom later that day that I wanted to do that when I grew up. No need to say what she said. It seemed like an important job. LOL 😀 stay safe 😷

  3. Those doors are stunning! I love the labels on the sides too…really fancy!

    Thanks for the laugh with Peter Sellers this morning. I hadn’t seen that clip or movie in ages! It’s pretty funny. 😂

    • Isn’t is sad that so many comedians (such as Peter Sellers and Robin Williams) aren’t at all happy themselves but can make us laugh until we cry? There are so many PP scenes in the various movies that we often quote or laugh about.

    Beautiful golden door indeed!

  5. That’s an amazing door!

    There must have been an era when those gold doors were the cat’s meow! We have them in SF too – generally at financial institution.

    • Yes, it was during a certain time when elegance was admired. I love “the cat’s meow” and also “the cat’s pajamas.” I have a cup with the latter saying and a cuts picture of a cat in pjs, not a photo but a Sandra Boynton picture.
