Thursday Doors: Paris’s 9th Arrondissement

We spent only one night in an art deco hotel in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris, but my son and I decided to walk up to nearby Montmartre and Sacre Coeur Church. On the way, I got photos of many interesting doors to post when I got back for Norm’s Thursday Doors!

The most curious thing about French doors is that the doorknobs are in the middle of the door, not next to the lock mechanism. The door below appears to open in the middle, as do many French doors.20190615_125512
I was amazed at the uniqueness of the doors on the old buildings of this neighborhood.

This is an old cinema.

I love the embellishments over some of the doors.

This door itself isn’t very interesting, but rather what is around it and inside.

This door has no doorknob – apparently you go in or out by pushing or pulling the door inward.

Star’s Music on the corner became a landmark for finding our way around!
