As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I took my family for a short trip to Aguascalientes, Mexico last week.  It’s a beautiful city, and of course I took lots of photos of amazing doors!

In the theme of Wordless Wednesday…padlocks and chains were a common sight:

This was on the front door of the bank!

The fair was in town, so random businesses and homes offered their bathrooms for a fee…this sign made it clear that the charge was per person, not per group sharing the baño at the same time:

This egress deterrent was on the door of a kids’ art space…I guess the cable lock wasn’t enough?


Of course we couldn’t visit Aguascalientes without going to the thermal baths…I noticed that there was an outdoor dining space with a 10-foot drop and no railing, and I was very thankful that my kids are beyond the toddler years:

Here’s a little video of the drop:

This door knocker was huge…padlock for scale (plus a regular-sized knocker that caught my eye):


I saw several GIANT sliding doors…remember, manually-operated sliders can not serve an occupant load of more than 10 people.  Both of these buildings were large assembly spaces:

Here’s another wide door – this time a swinging door:

And a few cool facades and entrances:

I saw lots of accessibility efforts – it’s a major component of the local government’s 400-page improvement plan – but it’s tough to address the existing infrastructure:

Finally, part of my crew blocking a marked exit.  The door was locked with a double-cylinder deadbolt anyway:
