Doorways Around the World

Carriage House

arch_and_door_2.jpg

This doorway was in back of a home in a neighborhood of very large frame houses in the Summit-Hill area of St.Paul. It looks like it’s an entrance to a carriage house behind the main house. Couldn’t find anyone to ask for information.

Källarhals

Källarhals (literally Cellar Throat), Gamla Stan (Old Town), Stockholm • late 1500s

In one of my Old Town wanderings, I noticed this well-preserved many-holed door. I searched for information about it and found that there had been a big hole behind the grated surface . . . a quick access to the cellar used in Medieval times. Supplies could easily be unloaded, such as wood for heating. And in reverse, all kinds of household rubbish could be thrown onto the street. It’s easy to imagine how this looked and smelled just beside the entrance.

Photographer: Terry LeBlanc of Giclee Stockholm.

The streets of Stockholm are so narrow that it’s often impossible to get a shot of the entire doorway. Terry has developed a mixed media technique to combine elements of the scene into one image, which is explained here on her website.

Bollhusgränd 3A

Bollhusgränd 3A (Ball Courts Lane), Gamla Stan (Old Town), Stockholm • ca. 1620

This baroque doorway is located on one of the oldest lanes of the Old Town. The name indicates that an indoor sports hall once stood here. Two sleepy lions look down from the lintels and at the same time protect the coats of arms of Privy Councilor Per Banér and his wife Effa Fleming.

Norman Gate

“Looking from the Upper Ward through the Norman Gate to the Middle Ward. Although the gate is one of the oldest in the castle, historically protecting the Inner Bailey, the current structure dates mostly from the 18th Century.”
