#ThursdayDoors – the “For the Duration” door

A reader found this door on one arm of the Sauer-McShane Mercantile (described as “an antique, miraculously-still-standing edifice”) which was in operation from 1877 to 1892 as a masonry warehouse in Central City, a town so named because it’s pretty much in the center of the state of Colorado. The “city” thrived for a duration as miners made their fortunes but then became the kind of funky, dusty landmark tourists love to frequent and artists love to bring alive. The name my reader gave the door is revealing as she ran a cafe in that town during a “duration” of her life.  How about you?  Do you have a duration door?  I’ll try to find mine for next week’s #ThursdayDoors.
