Thursday Doors

Here’s my contribution to the excellent Thursday Doors blog over at Norm 2.0 blog.

My theme for this week is Grotty Industrial

Blake Street

The sign on the lamp post says this is a conservation area, I hope so. There’s a great pub at the end of this street, I used to drink there in the late 1970’s when It was rather eccentric for want of a better word, but that’s another story.

I Love You

Corah Building

This was the largest hosiery factory in Leicester at one time. There’s a short history of Corah on Wikipedia. It’s sad to see the factory in this condition.

    I was going to waffle on about the circle of life, change and the symbol of the door as a metaphor for the future, the unknown, hidden behind it. But I won’t. Another great set of portals.

      Thank you Helen. Me too, lots of the lovely old factories here end up being vandalised or set on fire. By the way my mum worked in a cotton mill in Preston before they moved to Leicester. :>)

    love the first one, especially with that I love you text on it… such an unusual place to find such message, one would think, but it just stands out more 🙂
    the blue door in the last photos is also gorgeous, with the shadow of the tree across it…
    beautiful stuff this week, conspicari!!

    I particularly like those last two, the doorways are lovely anyway (Victorians put so much attention to detail into their architecture compared to us) and the shadows of the trees falling over them are the icing on the cake for me.
