Every Thursday the always lovely Norm over at Norm 2.0 has a fun feature called, “Thursday Doors”. Norm challenges us to find distinctive and interesting doors that we happen to come across during our travels.
How’s this for unique? I posted this picture a few years ago, but thought I’d ‘get it out of the vault’ (very bad pun intended) to use for today’s Thursday Doors post.
This is one of the many things I love about Chicago! Instead of destroying beautiful architecture (inside and out), this city is filled with re-purposed materials and structures.
Case in point: The ‘door’ you see above is located in a local pharmacy/chemist shop. It used to be a beautiful old bank building. Utilizing the vault door, the shop has turned the former safe-keeper into a room of vaulted vitamins.
Although I didn’t find any money in this room (not even Al Capone could claim a good hiding spot for his loot here) I did picture what it must have looked like ‘back in the day’. Swapping dollars for D Vitamins is a pretty clever idea, don’t you think?
Thanks always to Norm for this fun, weekly door challenge!
