Last weekend we braved the crowds and took the kids to the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade. The weather was AMAZING!!! And so was this gorgeous antique fire engine:
After the parade we spent some time moseying around town and enjoying the sunshine. I spotted these doors at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross (1875), and I thought it was really interesting that they were originally bifold doors, and at some point were made into solid swinging leaves by adding the horizontal rails and installing standard hardware.
There were plenty of other cool doors at the cathedral. I was hoping that the closers were old L.C.Norton’s but the closers for the interior doors were old potbellies, still going strong.
Here is a close-up of one of the hinges in response to a comment left about how the doors may have been modified:
