Thursday Doors – April 20, 2017
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.
“Eckhardt House” – Unionville, Ontario
For today’s submission, I offer a return to the village of Unionville, in southern Ontario. As I have stated before, my biggest disappointment with historical buildings is when the original doors are removed in favour of modern pressed steel doors. Though practical, I feel they diminish teh beauty of the building. So, when I find an original door, I am extremely pleased.
This particular house is one of the few houses in Unionville that I have found with original doors. As has become my custom of late, I’m sharing the Streetview link to the larger view.
As with last week’s image, I did not have my Nikon with me, and relied on my handy iPhone, which does not disappoint.

We watch a lot of British television, and always notice the beautiful doors and windows in the background.
That’s my kind of door, gracious, well-proportioned and – as you say – unusual because it’s original. Nice find.
It’s beautiful and so very well maintained – good find 🙂
Pillar-box red? 😉
So, I’m gathering the house features red, white, and blue:) Would love to see the whole building..
Have a look at the Streetview link
Ah, thank you. My mind got away with a tall 2 or 3 story building:):
Understandable, given how I cropped it 🙂
What a beautiful and pleasing door, Ed!
It is one of the nicer doors along that street.
Great door photo. Feels very summery. Now I am inspired to find and take some door photos myself.
It seems like a strange thing to follow, doors. But through this forum, I find I am not alone. 🙂
