A Door; a Shutter or a Shutdoor?!!?



I had a bit of a laugh when I first saw this door. Perhaps you are having one now as you look at it. Isn't this a funny door....or whatever it can be called? All I can guess and certainly you might guess the same, is that this was some kind of a store at one time and the low wall served as part of the store's front and display area. It is nice that it has stayed this way if it really was once this. Luckily the door is rather high and the arch is a tight one because if it were lower and the arch was different, it might be painful to walk through this door if you aren't paying attention! I like this little door/whatever...it makes me think of a three-legged table or even one of those half tables that only have 2 legs because the table is supposed to be placed against the wall. This door has no handle, so I'm guessing that access to it is from a different entrance...nevertheless, a peephole does exist!! What a fun door!!

It is odd, but that what makes in endearing...

Just a thought...
There is no need to use both word verification and owner approval for comments. You really only need one or the other. It is also kind of hard and time consuming to comment because all of your photos have to load everytime. Why not change your comment form to a "pop-up" and just have owner approval... just a thought! I'm still here either way...Thanks!

Hiya Cat,
You blog is a soothing haven of peace and tranquillity. And now a visual pun as well.
It reminds me of Dutch doors, which I have always found rather useless. Still, I'm sure there was a reason for this one, if only to make us smile years after it was constructed.
BTW, is there no rubbish in Prague? Street cobbles look immaculate.

Oh that is too funny. Not like any Dutch door I've ever seen. It must be for munchkins and giants...
