Thursday Doors – Still in Dundalk

This week’s Thursday Doors post is short and sweet but still in Dundalk.

There’s a lot of the old architecture still to be seen if you look up, even when the ground floor has been modernized.

Thanks for stopping by this week. Norm has lots of links to Thursday Doors from contributors all over the world well worth looking at.

    The 12 panel front door is unique. I’ve not seen anything like it.

  6. Some great shabby chic going on here, Jean. I like the 12-panel door and where they put the door knob on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Interesting architecture. Many blame Le Corbusier for the ugliness of today’s cities.

    • Thanks for the link, the video was very interesting. Here in the 60s and 70s inner city communities in Dublin were split up and housed in ugly modern high rises. Many of those families left old Victorian and Edwardian rented tenements that were not fit to live in, for the new corporation owned flats. The locations were badly serviced for a long time, scant public transport and an isolated life in buildings were elevators broke down. Some decades later they’ve all been torn down and replaced with smaller housing estates, shops, leisure facilities etc. I think the money would have been better spent renovating the old tenements and letting people stay in their original communities in the city.

    Love that white door with the dark top, Jean. Significant buildings of the past, so am happy they have been preserved.
