#Thursday Doors — Old Towne Hall

I couldn’t find any information on whether this building was a literal old town hall, used to hold town meetings in a Chicago suburb, but I did find it’s now a venue for weddings and other celebrations.

I like the way the mid-day sun cast a shadow on the door, replicating an arc like the brick and transom overhead.


Something about the stuff in the window above betrays the formality of the rest of it, don’tcha think?
Still, what pretty wooden #ThursdayDoors.

    Simple, practical doors. I love the way wooden doors seem to stay attractive as they age. These are very nice. I so like the arched shadow too.

    Good one. I kinda like the shape of those cool signs on either side and those light fixtures are a nice touch. I wonder if those were old gas lanterns at one time. Then again maybe in Chicago after the fire, gas lamps might not have been such a good idea.

  4. It is a very interesting door, like you mentioned, the window above it seems a bit out of keeping with the rest of the building. I love the shape of the doorway, and the symmetry of the lights and placards either side,

    I like the way the window contrasts with the formality of the door. All that is missing is an old woman shelling beans or a bearded roue watching the world go by with a martini in one hand and a cigar in the other,

  6. I like it, Joey, but it’s not Naperville’s town hall! 🙂

  7. Interesting, you get the feeling it could be heavy creaky doors, but most probably not..

    That is one mighty fine example of a door, Joey. I think the informality of the white cafe curtains (and clutter on windowsill) indicates this is possibly a break room where deals and informal arguments may transpire overhead the more formal rooms where committees and gatherings transpire.
