This is the street door of a bank on the Zattere, Dorsoduro.
The doors of my bank look nothing like this.
It seems the position of the door pull has been changed at some stage

Nor mine! Inspires some confidence that the bank will be around for a while (since it’s obviously been around for a good long while already).
After reading Bert’s comments, I must go and look more carefully at that splendid old door. It’s been around for a while, Alexa. I’m not sure about the bank!
I love Italian doors someone should do a book on them. Perhaps your next project
How beautiful – it would almost make you happy going to the bank!
I have no idea what the interior of that bank is like, maybe that can be another project for next time, Jo. How are you folks?
It looks as if more than the door pull has been changed. The “hinges” are on the wrong side.
Q. What do you do if a teacher rolls her eyes at you?
A. Pick them up and roll them back to her!
Groan, Bert. 🙂
I must have walked past that many times and not really noticed. I think I need to borrow your eyes for a while. Are you using them in November? You could have mine meantime, such as they are.
What colour are they, Andrew? If they’re brown, you’ve got a deal, I always wanted brown eyes.
They are! They are!
I have no idea what the door of my bank looks like these days….haven’t been there in years since I do all my banking on-line.
But yes, if I had gold (or silver) I’d love to keep it behind a door like that.
You can go and use the bancomat at that one, in November/December, Michelle.
OOOOOO, that sounds like a lovely idea. Just to see that door and add it to my collection.
Quite the door. Lots of character.
It’s been around for awhile, I reckon.
I feel like I could go there and request all my gold and spend the day counting it!
If you need a body guard, I can spare a day for you!
I don’t actually HAVE any gold, it just looks like a place to dream of counting gold! 🙂
(and gold tanked in the market, so if I had any, it’s not worth as much now!)
Well, darn! I was packing my bag already. Phooey … 🙂
