While on vacation last month in Nova Scotia I hit the mother lode when it comes to wonderful doors, particularly in the seaside town of Lunenburg.
Located about an hours’ drive south of Halifax, Lunenburg was a hub for both the fishing and the shipbuilding industries. Partly because of its historical significance to those industries in the region, as well as for the number of well-maintained examples of brightly decorated 18th and 19th century coastal architecture, in 1995 the entire town was named a UNSECO World Heritage site – the only entire town with this distinction in North America.
I spent a good part of an afternoon wandering the streets of Lunenburg taking pictures of the wonderful architecture and of course, the doors; and oh, what doors! So many that I’ll be annoying my readers with doors from this area in posts for months to come 🙂
For this week I chose a series of doors all from a similar style of entranceway. Though each is unique in its own way they, all have the same bump-out or bowed design:
Some of them are definitely in need of a little TLC. If they all seem a little narrower than modern doors that’s because they are. I guess the building codes were different back then.
