I’ve run out of relatively current doors so I’m going dumpster archive diving to Philadelphia, a city that always provides interesting doors. I’ve got a little of everything so everyone can hopefully find something s/he likes: wooden doors, metalwork, a side door, stonework, interesting windows, and more. What’s more eclectic than that? 🙂 Alas, I have no history for any of these doors but feel free to make up your own. Philly’s been around for many years, so you have a lot of choices.

The door and windows all present attractive glass and a bay window look always appeals to me.

Oh that all security would be this beautiful!

Flowers and vegetation make for a friendly look and take away the feel of being in a big city at least a little bit.

Thursday Doors 4.7.22

Philadelphia has a plethora of traditional doors on lovely old row houses. But it can be rather eclectic, too, as these unusual doors show. There’s something for everyone.

Most of Philadelphia’s doors reflect the city’s stately history, a city that was once the temporary capital of the United States and a center for America’s revolutionaries.  Perhaps these doors reflect a bit of that revolutionary spirit as well as the eclectic diversity of the city.

Our revolutionary doorman for Thursday Doors is Norm, way up in Montreal.  Jeudi portes est très amusant, eh?  And hey, it’s almost hockey season again.  That gets my en-door-phins going!
