More Doors in NDG – Montreal

Last week we visited Porchfest in Montreal’s NDG borough in this post here.

This week I thought I’d throw in a few of the other interesting and/or colourful commercial doors found along Sherbrooke St. W which is the main artery through this part of town.

Used books and vinyl records anyone?

Old municipal building turned post office and a fun corner door too!

Antiques, art, and stained glass dealer.

Not sure why a vet needs such a fancy storefront, but I like it.

Abandoned apartment building

Same building, different angle, different door.

“A louer” + “For rent” – let’s see who sets up shop, and whether or not they keep the fun colours 🙂

As always, thanks for stopping in 🙂

    I love the color of the Encore shop and of course the one for rent. I hope they keep those vibrant colors!!

    Eclectic! I love reading French. That’s my favorite part of this post, although, like you, I’m curious if the new inhabitants will want to keep the pink!

  3. Since I’m a pink girl, I love the pink shop. I also like the mint record shop.

    I think I like the old apartment door best. Love them all though. I so appreciate you running this challenge for all us door-addicts. (I used to think I was alone!)

  6. Love the variety of doors, Norm. Like others, I think my favorite is the 5922 door with an unusual symbol.

    Here’s my door post for this week:

  8. I just love #3. It’s my favorite! But I’m a sucker for colors so #7 is my second favorite!
    And here’s my entry for this week: a set of doors in various shades of one color… 😉

    I like the little symbol on the 5922 door that is repeated on the window also.

    5922 would be me favorite one to rent! Stained glass is so beautiful:) The last one, if they would allow me to paint it in a different color, haha.. Mine are in the post “Mostly native Calififornian”

    seems like Sherbrooke St. has some nice colors and history….
    also – the doors through the fence were moody in a good way – the Graffiti and bricks ….

    here is my entry this week:
    3 glass doors and some from the archives

  15. Happy colours and sights. I understand Encore, but does that other name mean A Cat and Wind? 😀

    Here is my rainy tour of Ljubljana but it ends with lunch, including sister’s newly painted door.

    Hi Norm,
    Sorry I’ve been away for a few weeks. I’ve been fully immersed in researching and writing my book and seemingly fell down a mine shaft and kept falling. My favourite was the hot pink one to rent. Love it.
    This week I’ve finally managed to post the door photos I took at the Sydney Writers’ Festival a few weeks ago:
    Best wishes,

    I like 5670, Norm! It’s got a great vibe (must come with the records)! Today I have a very ‘busy’ door located in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Thank you, Norm! Cher xo

  20. The Achat one is my favourite, Norm. Although, that last hot pink corner door is fun and interesting. Would make a nice little retro/vintage shop. Here’s my contribution this week, thanks for hosting.

  21. I like the Buy and Sell (thrift/consignment?) store and the bright colors of the last shop. I have lots of used vinyl I’d love to sell, but I think any profit margin wouldn’t balance the cost of driving to Montreal to do the selling. 🙂 Would be a fun trip, though.

    I’m in Philadelphia again this week, with two for the price of one.

      Thanks Janet. No between the time and the cost of gas a used vinyl selling trip to Montreal would be a losing proposition, unless you have some rare collectible stuff in your collection 😉

    Some lovely collection of doors. Loved it. This week I’m focusing on some of the oldest banks in Mumbai.

    TWO corner doors this week! Jackpot! That pink doesn’t appeal to me, but the beautiful blues do. At least, I’m pretty sure they’re blue. All the online tests tell me I’m not colorblind, but shades of blue/green, brown/green, and orange/pink baffle me. Whatever colors they are, though, I love ’em! My door inspired a story for the next-to-the-last day of Story A Day May:

  24. Very nice set. It’s a great idea to paint the doors of a building for rent in such bright colours. Good investment.

    I like these ‘everyday’ doors, but the pick of the bunch for me is 5922 blending the old with the new through design.

  26. Norm, some interesting doors this week. 5922 is my fave. My doors come from the street across the river from Durham Cathedral and Castle.

    You have a nice mix of fun and sad doors, Norm. I love the corner door at the municipal office building. I think Joanne is right, ice cream shop!

    I like everything about the Achats & Vente storefront.

    I’m guessing the store in the last photo used to be a candy / ice cream shop. It looks like a wonderful corner location. I would want that for my store.

    Love the magenta woodwork on that last one, and I also would like to visit Encore! My entrant is here

  30. Great eclectic grouping of doors, Norm. I would have guessed the vet’s door was an antique store, and I hope the corner pink door grabs a great tenant. Happy Thursday.

    • Norm 2.0 says:

      Thanks Judy. I should have paid closer attention to what was going on with that vet’s door. I’m wondering now if maybe the vet hadn’t moved out and the new tenant IS an antiques store that hasn’t had time to change the sign yet….

    Encore looks fun, Norm, and I like the art deco touches on the art shop.
    I’ve gone with just one stately door this week:
