Thursday doors – 20 February 2020

Doors 97 – Some small cellar doors in Bristol

In some of the older commercial buildings in the city there are cellars, and the quickest access to these cellars was from the roadside via doors that opened directly onto the pavement. Perhaps we are most familiar with these cellar doors outside pubs, where the barrels of beer are still delivered through them.

This is just a little selection of these doors, and another little door thrown in for good measure… a little extra if you like.

Here we go:

This first door is the same one as the feature image, photographed a few months afterwards. Spot the difference?

So my friendly doorsters, that’s it for another week. Have a great weekend whatever you get up to.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors and you ought to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.
