Thursday Doors – Nov 10, 2016
This 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.
And yet another door for beautiful Germain Street in Saint John, New Brunswick. This fairly simple door, with the ornate scrollwork above it, sits at the very beginning of Germain Street and concluded my photo walk that day.
Once more, the door is a bit ‘weathered’ but the owners have taken some measures to make it beautiful. It looks like an original door, which is wonderful. I see so many antique doors being replaced with aluminum and vinyl and the character is lost.
The photo was made near the end of the day and you can see the sun reflecting off the building across the street. Once more, I’m posting the Google Streetview link, so you can see the doors in relation to their surroundings. The contrast between old and modern will surprise you.

That is a beauty Ed. I will have to check that street out if I ever get out that way.
Like I said, the whole street is lovely.
You’re right about the aluminum and vinyl doors having no character. This is a beautiful door and I love the gold ornamentation.
Not only a nice door but stellar surrounds. Good find, Ed. I’d love to see the rest of the street.
I have many more
