The Red Door

This is one of the side entrances to Bloor Street United Church which I showed you last July (HERE). I love the red door with those fabulous hinges. And surprisingly the doors were not locked so I actually got into the vestibule. I'll give you a peek of some of the great stained glass tomorrow.

Good shot Pat. Red is a colour that really attracts the eyes.

What a gorgeous entry - love that stone and the door is very special. Very inviting.

In the U.S. many Episcopal churches feature red entry doors. I'm not sure why but I suspect it has something to do with being "saved by the blood of Jesus."

You are correct. That is a terrific red door showing the art of the black smith with the design of those hinges.

There was a time when huge hinges like this were very popular. Pretty cool, aren't they?
