Thursday Doors – September 08, 2016

knox-hall-doors-university-of-torontoThis week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

This week, a return to the University of Toronto and it numerous spectacular doors. Today, I have chosen the main doorway to Knox College, another building on the U of T grounds, proudly facing the central campus grounds as they have for over one hundred years.

I’d like to return her to photograph the interior. The website link above shows a brief glimpse into this architectural wonder.

  1. I recently had the pleasure of walking around U of T for the first time and taking photos of this gorgeous campus … including Knox College. I did venture inside and was surprised to encounter signs that indicated no photography was allowed. I don’t remember the exact wording of the sign, but the impression it left me was that a permit was required. I didn’t stop long enough to actually investigate though so hopefully I misunderstood.
    I can say though, that walking inside did not give me the same sense of wow that I had going into other buildings like Hart House.

    • Interesting. I have not been inside Knox, I just saw photos on their web site. It’s worth asking the question about photography though. I think permits are required for professionals, since many weddings are held here. That said, if all photography is prohibited, cell phones should be included.

  2. Lots to love about this one indeed. U of T is definitely moving higher on my list for my next visit to Toronto.
    Great shot Ed 🙂
