Thursday Doors: Fisher Building, Chicago (circa 1896)

The always awesome Norm from Norm 2.0 has a great weekly feature called, “Thursday Doors”.  He invites fellow bloggers to share unique and interesting doors that we happen upon.

The above photo is that of the entrance to the “Fisher Building” which is located in “the loop” area in downtown Chicago.

Built in 1896, this neo-gothic style, 20-story building was sanctioned by paper tycoon Lucius Fisher.

Although the doors appear modern, the ornate detail around them is original to the building.  I can see what appears to be fish (albeit scary-looking), cherubs, and seashells).

I’m always happy to see original doors on buildings, but if that isn’t practical, it’s nice to see the original frames that make these doors extra special.

Thanks to Norm for hosting this fun, weekly challenge!
