I frequently drive by this house and have for decades, but I actually didn’t notice these doors until just last week as I was parked in front of them waiting for the train to pass.
I’m not sure what’s going on with the house itself. There are signs about apartments, but the signs are too weathered to be current and the whole house seems abandoned. There’s a grocery cart tethered to the right-side door. Next to it lie a pair of shoes and a deflated soccer ball. All the landscaping has gone wild.
For instance, when you walk up to the door on the left, (your only option) there are steps so deeply covered in trailing ground cover, it’s more of a hill than a step.
Let’s face it, the door is old and y’all know I love that, but it’s really all the texture of its architectural features that makes the facade appealing.
I found it appealing enough to park in a lot marked No Trespassing, and then walk down a tiny sidewalk on a busy road just to capture it.
It sure was somethin, wasn’t it? I wonder if it will get to be somethin again?
