Thursday Doors – June 2, 2016

Thursday Doors is 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 it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below. 

More Doors in Downtown Montréal

Here are a few more shots from a recent doorscursion on residential streets in downtown Montreal.

I believe these are on Stanley Street in a part of downtown known as the Golden Square Mile. There are some beautiful, well-maintained old buildings in this part of the city.

For you architecture fans, where possible I’ve included wider shots to offer more of a view of the entire building.











Thanks for looking 🙂

    I love the big golden entrance-way at the beginning. It’s the door off-centre to the archway that really works for me.

    wonderful collection of old doors. I’m an old door lover, too and have posted quite a lot of old Greek doors.

  8. This is so great! There’s something so hopeful and inviting about a door, and those who go to the extreme with attention to detail surely are aware of the evocative promise they herald. Such a fantastic post; thank you! I’ve enjoyed each one.

    Favorite one: definitely number 3! I dream about an entrance like that since when I was a kid 🙂
    Here is a little beauty I spotted in Lübeck, Germany, a couple of weeks ago! I loved it!

    I wanted to savor and not rush through this Doors post, Norm. I left a comment this morning before work, on the pine and wordless post. I came back to look at all the details this evening. I enjoyed all of these gorgeous doors but must admit my favorite us the second one where the whole building has a red brick castle look to it. The frilly and lacy grille work is so pretty!

  15. I’m very glad for the third picture, for the wide view. This is an incredible house! And many other doors are splendid indeed.

  16. Oh, Norm, I love the first one — I’d love to paint that! The third set reminded me of pagodas… an unusual mix. And thank you for including some interesting images of the buildings these doors grace!

  17. Great finds as always Norm! The wood beveled doors are lovely, and I did love that stone building. I liked that you included some more of the buildings this week too.

    Hi Norm, you found a great selection once again. I love these classic doors wherever in the world I see them ❤

    So much beauty! I especially like the doors that are up a couple of stairs inside deep recesses. It’s like being inside while you’re still outside. This was a real treat!

      Thanks Joan those are my favorites too; a nice way to be sheltered from the elements while you fumble for your keys. Unfortunately it’s a design element that became less practical when the building codes changed around the beginning of the 20th century.


  23. Wonderful doors and buildings, Norm. I don’t have a favorite, just enjoyed them all.

    Old wooden double doors, set in stone entrances. Wow – what’s not to like here? It’s hard to choose. I think I like all the doors. I like the photo of 3460. It seems to be calling me up those stairs and into that entrance. These buildings look like they’ve been here a long time. I am glad to see them all in such good shape. Great doors Norm!

      Thanks Dan. Many of the original homes and buildings in the Golden Square Mile are mid-nineteenth century – and with a few rare exceptions, they are all well maintained.
      What’s also nice is how even some of the newer ones were built to replicate the look of the ones already there.

    These doors all seem to glow as though they are regularly polished.

    Gorgeous photos, as usual. I love the third shot of the red building from the corner angle – what a lovely, interesting piece of architecture. x

  29. Magnificent doors, Norm. I love the walls of that second building, and the steps look so well-worn and aged.

      Thanks Jean. You’re right, those steps on the second one do have a nice worn look about them. Though I’m still scratching my head about the extra-low placement of the mail slot :-/

      • They probably didn’t want to spoil the look of the door. I would prefer a wooden mail slot that can be stained or painted to blend into a door, rather than have it stand out. I’m not even sure if they are available. 😉
