Old and New

We only had a day in Portsmouth before having to move on so our wanderings were limited to the area near the waterfront where we were staying.  But even in that bit of area there was much to take in.  Although there were many historical buildings around, I was more so drawn to their doors.  This one caught my eye not only because of the colors but because of the juxtaposition of the old door and the modern parking meters.

And why are those meters against the building and not at the curb?  What is going to park there?

    Very nice. Portsmouth has some lovely doors. I think some cities positioned their parking meters that way to make it easier to clear snow. Cheers!

      Thanks and thanks for clearing up that mystery of the placement of the meters. I had fun discovering doors there.

        If we come that way again we will have to stay longer than overnight 🙂

        Definitely. It’s a fun town and you can do some nice day trips from there. Cheers!

        Well, you did Maine. Newburyport and Plum Island come to mind. The Lakes Region or White Mountains for a day. 😊

    I’ve only learned recently to admire the doors of buildings and I’ve come to even enjoy the historic areas of towns even more because of this. You found a great one here!!

      Thanks! There is wonder in details or even common things. I have a few more doors coming up 🙂

    perhaps a place

    to curb their quarters 🙂

    Looks like any one of a number of my projects around here. Almost finished but, for some reason, never quite complete. If that were my building, I’d be saying, “Yes. All I need to do is get a can of blue paint from the hardware store and I’ll be done. First, though … “
