Doors of Old Sturbridge Village – Part 1

Last weekend we went out to Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum set in the 1830s. I made a series of images of doors there and thought I would show them today because there is a tradition of showing doors on Thursdays.

    Lovely doors! Living history museums are a wonderful thing. We have one in Berlin too, it’s more of an outdoor thing though. Showing early life settlements with straw huts, sheep etc. It’s an awesome place and I loved it as a kid.

        It definitely was! It´s unique and such things are always priceless! 🙂
        maybe you could try to sell your images to companies who do stuff like that? I´ve been contacted a couple of weeks ago, if I would like to sell some of my designs for T-shirts and the like, but since I would have to give over complete rights, I decided not to. There must be companies though that wouldn’t be that insensible I think. or maybe try out Etsy? I´m sure many people would love to have such a punk-team sleeve!

    This was certainly like a rainbow of doors, Chris. All of them have features which give them a spark of interest! They would entice me to peek in windows should there have not been a possible tour. The yellow one and worn and rugged, wooden door are my favorites! Hope you have a lovely week and no snow!!

      Yes! No more snow!!!! Thank you, Robin. We went inside many of these building. The museum has great exhibits. Some are cases displaying items and others have active workshops for blacksmiths, potters and tinsmiths. Have you been up to Greenfield Village? I still recall visiting there many, many years ago. Have a great week. Cheers!
