Thursday Doors – 30
Midtown Atlanta Doors
Last Saturday I had the great pleasure to go on a photo walk with a blogging friend, Norman Frampton, the founder of “Thursday Doors”. Of course, we set out, along with friend David, to find doors.
Midtown Atlanta is an interesting mix of old and new. You can learn a little more in my first installment of posts about this photo walk, “Monday Window – Midtown Atlanta”.
It wasn’t long for Norm to find a door in an unusual setting. Car doors are fair game, aren’t they?
One of the most impressive buildings in Midtown is the historic Fox Theatre. This impressive structure dates back to 1929. That is a long time ago as history goes in the Atlanta area.
The front lobby is huge, large enough to park some cars, with shiny doors to the inside of the theater. We didn’t do the inside, too many other things, and doors, to see in the area.
The last two photos above show the main entrances to to historic churches. The red doors are from Saint Mark United Methodist Church built in 1903. The doors under the Roman arches belong to North Avenue Presbyterian Church and dates from 1900. Both churches were built from granite from nearby Stone Mountain.
That last door, you will notice, is seen from the inside of our final stop.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world.
This delightful activity is conducted by Norman Frampton.
