This week's doorway is of the Bowdoin School, a Georgian Revival style building located at 45 Myrtle Street on Beacon Hill. It was built in 1896 and designed by Edmund March Wheelwright who also designed the Longfellow Bridge, Harvard Lampoon Building, Jordan Hall, and Horticultural Hall. This building housed the administration of the Boston Public Schools after 1936 and was converted to condominiums in 1977.
I really like also the white decoration top!
A very solid door it seems:)
Lovely and beautiful shot !! I loved it..Do check my another blog also i.e.Unseen Rajasthan
Classical architecture around the door, "greek style" with the sculpture, the columns and the tall pediment (or fronton?)..AND, the very bostonian red bricks!
I like this mix, it makes something really typical!
Doors & windows.. well any day any time.. my favorite subjects to shoot... nice shot this one..
Very nice entrance! I like the columns.
I like the shape of the door. ;-)
Ohh I love this door. Very nice shot!
I think if I lived there I'd be compelled to stand up straight and put my shoulders back every time I walked through the door! It really does still have that school feel to it (probably because it still says school right up there LOL).
Wouldn't mind living there... ;-)
Impressive entrance. I don't think I'd mind living in one of those condos!
Lovely door. Mr. Wheelwright was a very talented and busy man. It seems that the conversion to condos has worked well.
What a surprise to see!
