Doors 197 – Porto doors (Part 11)
Another very short one this week, I am way too distracted by the disintegration of democracy in the UK, driven by far-right ‘think tanks’. It seems so very sad that a selfish few have ruined so much for the rest of us and utterly trashed our international reputation and status. Enough about that – I could go on for pages!
Once again, I return to Porto for this week’s selection. All of these doors or doorways, belong to São Bento station which is famed for its elaborate azulejo tile work in the main vestibule. I don’t have time to offer a history of the station, but am simply sharing some snaps of this incredible 19th century space. I hope you enjoy:
That’s it for this week, I’m afraid.
If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.
