I recently discovered that each Thursday, Norm from, “miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind” hosts a ‘door post’, whereby anyone who wishes to post pictures of unique and interesting doors on their blog can do just that, and link their post to Norm’s post. Norm commented that he thought I should be able to find some interesting doors in Chicago. Well Norm, I took myself on a magical mystery Chicago tour today, and did I find something wonderful!
The GIGANTIC door in the photo above is 14 feet high; yes, I kid you not. Well, funny I would use the word, “kid”, as this door is not a functional door; rather, it is a display of sorts at, “Big Monster Toys Company” here in Chicago. Ah, look who is guarding the toy company with mammoth teeth and googly eyes!
Why, it’s this guy, “Big Monster” himself! I daresay not too many people will get past this green, hairy, scary guy, now, will they? To put the size of the door into perspective, I waited until a couple of people walked by; you’ll see what I mean:
I tried to get a good photo of the door; however, I literally had to stand on the road and watch for traffic in order to get the pictures you see here! Suffice it to say, they were a quick snap and get back on the sidewalk grouping! I attempted to see if there was another door into the building; that is, one without a centurion monster! I couldn’t find anything open to the public. I sure wanted to get past that furry fiend and take a peek inside! Ah Chicago, you are filled with fun!
