Somewhere down the ages, there must have been a rule book that required churches to be built with awe-inspiring entrances, for if there is an old church, a wonderful door is also likely to be found.
In downtown Toronto is an old formidable building holding its own amid the towering skyscrapers of the financial district – St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.
I’ve walked by this church countless times over the years and only recently noticed the equally interesting side doors.
I love that each door has its own unique features and I would be hard-pressed to pick a favourite.
The construction of St Andrew’s was completed in 1876, which by Toronto standards is quite old.
In true Joanne style, I failed to get a photo of the entire church so I needed to resort to Mr Google to help me provide some perspective on the whole building.
It has a tiny turret at the back on the right side. That alone makes it a delight in my opinion.
… and one last look at one of the side entrances. I like the addition of the little columns on the upper windows to match the door below.
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature hosted by Norm Frampton from Norm 2.0. Go take a look and sample some of the interesting doors provided … perhaps you have your own favourite doors you’d like to share.
