Thursday Doors: Doors of Quebec City

This is a photo essay featuring several doors of the old part of downtown Québec City for Norm’s Thursday Doors, since they do not all belong to the same place.

I posted this picture last week for Flower of the Day (FOTD). I took this photo shortly after we left the Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica. Apparently the flowers were decorations related to a window display of this shop.

This is not a real door, but rather a close-up of part of a large mural depicting characters, both fictional and historical, which populate a street scene of Quebec. As you can see, the painting is very realistic.

I loved this building near the waterfront in Quebec. The three pairs of red doors are quite unique. At the top of the building is a post that sticks out, apparently for throwing over a rope to act as a sort of pulley to haul up goods from the street.

Just as I snapped the picture of this beautiful door, a tourist stepped in front of it and then I couldn’t get another picture.
