More Great Hinges

I seem to be stumbling across more and more of these great old hinges as I wander about the city. This is the main entrance to Trinity College which is one of the colleges at U of Toronto. On weekends and after hours one must enter through that smaller door visible on the left. I do love those hinges!

I agree Pat.. they don't make hinges like that anymore :) Mind you, you'd need a huge door to match.

Your photos do not 'hinge' upon your these only though.

I like those ancient door-within-a-door I see often on old Anglican or Anglican-style churches.

I am so glad to see this, Pat, as I was afraid you might be coming unhinged! :)

It is a gorgeous door! Love all that stone!

Super size hinges and fantastic architecture.

They remind me of some of the doors on the Parliament buildings, but the architecture falls under much of the same influences, so that's to be expected.

I also like the hinges, but here, the entire entry way is lovely.

I can see the attraction, you just need a very impressive door to do them justice....

Now that is what I call style, and the entire door and entry way is marvelous!
