Recent trips to towns such as Montpellier and Aix-en-Provence have greatly added to my stock of doors. This handsome example is on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix, a wide thoroughfare and one of the most popular and lively places in the town. The street has pavements planted with double rows of plane trees. It also divides Aix into two portions, the Quartier Mazarin, or “new town”, which extends to the south and west, and the Ville comtale, or “old town”, which lies to the north with its wide but irregular streets and its old mansions dating from 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments’ on Norm’s site, anytime between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American Eastern Time).
