Posts Tagged ‘doors’

I know I posted doors from Stanford University last week so I hesitate to post more doors from the same place but these are beautiful doors and completely different from last week’s. These doors lead into Memorial Church (lovingly called Mem Chu) on the Stanford campus and are made of bronze.  There are three sets of exterior doors (and three of interior doors) at the front of the church.  The three sets are almost identical, except that the middle (main) entrance is wider than the other two sets.  It is a non-denominational church and always has been.  In fact, it was the first non-denominational church on the west coast when it was first dedicated in 1903.  I plan on doing an entire post on the church itself so I won’t go into much more detail.  You can read about it here and here.

One of the two main doors (double doors) that lead into the church.  They open outward and only one is ever open (or at least that I can remember over the past 40 years).

The set of double doors to the left of the middle/main doors.  This is what the middle ones would look like if they were closed.
