Thursday Doors – Sept 29, 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.

A step back in time, to a simpler, less ornate door than I have presented recently. This door can be found at Toronto’s Black Creek Pioneer Village, a collection of heritage buildings from the Toronto area, assembled to represent Toronto’s pioneer past.

I like the simple line and practicality of this door to the Broom Maker’s Shop, circa 1844. The building was moved here from Sherwood , Ontario and has an active interpretive centre. I’ve had some good conversations with the broom maker in the past and love the simple design of this building with its wonderful door and windows.

With the door open and the light coming through the window, it provides a glimpse of the interior.
