Thursday Doors – January 26, 2017
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.
West Doors of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Canada
Another view of this downtown Toronto church. I posted a photo of the front doors last week. A habit I have been in for some time now is to walk around the structure. WHile the front doors are grand and beautiful, many historical buildings have very interesting side and back doors. They tend to be a bit more ‘distressed’ than their welcoming counterparts, but this also makes them very interesting.
I do find it interesting though, that alternate doors (sorry, unintentional humour here), are not very well maintained. Less maintained may be the more correct expression here, as they are not, generally, in total disrepair. This west facing door is of the exact same design as the front doors, yet stonework is cracked and the door quite faded. I’m sure much is driven by budget decisions but, for me, it says a lot about priorities. I’m sure at one point, all the doors were equally important. After all, a lot of work went into the stunning stonework which frames the door itself. It just seems less important now. Just an impression.
