No. 5174: Thursday Door

LindaGHill got me curious about Norm of Norm 2.0’s Thursday door fests:

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below.

This week, Norm shared some wonderful doors from the South Shore of Nova Scotia – The Library Pub is my favourite both photographically and . . .

Just so happens, I have on this lap top (not the old, weary, worn one), an appropriate door picture. My Halifax neighbourhood re-gentrified in the early 1980s. Before No. 5174 went back 200 years to become upscale again, six to eight of us had ancient front door keys, a co-operative governance, fresh baked bread, musical kitchen parties, too much Earl Grey tea. I was considered the lucid stable one. (HA!). When we lived there, the door was bright red, no division into apartments, and we shared a double doorway and porch with mirror house next door.

  1. Awesome! So glad you found our quirky band of door misfits – welcome :-)
    I love Halifax. We have friends who live out that way that we try to visit every few years. That style of architecture is very familiar-looking.

    • “Thank you,” she said. “As soon as I saw the Library Pub. . .,” she laughed. “My father’s family was from the South Shore of Nova Scotia: Pentz (where the cable ferry still runs across the La Have River as far as I know), Mahone Bay Lunenburg, Liverpool area,” adding, “Now I shall go back through your blog looking for my nostalgia pictures.”
