  1. I suspect that door could tell some stories.

    As the bolt appears to be on the outside it seems a little pointless.

    • And, excuse the pun, you have a point there, Andrew.


    • If you zoom in on the number in the first photo, you’ll see it is red. In Florence, red numbers indicate a place of business, so that would explain why the bolt is on the outside.

      Who would have thought a couple of doors could excite such interest! And, when I get back to Florence, I’ll be looking for this pair of doors so I can satisfy everyone’s curiosity.


  3. There’s something about doors and I guess its a combination of history and mystery. Lovely set.

    Pity the poor postman/woman who has to push envelopes through that letter-box!

  6. A great door. Just imagine getting married and then having to carry the bride inside after opening that set of doors?

  7. The sliding bolt is curled up at both ends so shouldn’t move. Probably an illusion with a break in the bolt hidden under the left bolt support. Now that’s magic ! 😀 ❤
