CoryDoors – Old Bank #ThursdayDoors

I forget what this building is now, but it usetabe a bank. I didn’t get much of a door shot, because some pesky hard-worker was inna way, washing the door windows.

On the other hand, I did manage a shot of the back-to-the-futureish clock, some architectural detail, AND a light fixture for Joey. Priorities.

I also took a shot of the night deposit slot, which I hereby designate an honorary door. Besides, look at that ‘flection of Indiana’s first state capitol building. Or, no, I think that’s the toolshed. Something historical-looking, and picturesque anyway.

No, pretty sure that’s the capitol building. The toolshed looks pretty much like it, only smaller. But the toolshed doesn’t have a chimney, so…. Always good to have a native show you around, yes?

This sorry attempt at a post claims to be part of the Thursday Doors link-up hosted by the marvelous Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his blog, enjoy his pictures, click on the blue frog link, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about a bank, an abandoned bank, or look-alike buildings.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    You had me at columns 🙂
    I think it’s one of the reasons why I love old bank buildings. Banks and government agencies were the only ones who could afford columns 😉

      I’ll have to remember to look out for columns for you. Isn’t it funny how we have favorite architectural elements? That tickles me.

    Old banks are winners in my book, too. That is a very traditional bank light! So plantation style! And it really is a Back To The Future kinda clock, isn’t it? Like that depository door, too. Great collection today!

    I like old banks. Back when they built them to look like a safe place to put your money. Today’s banks are anemic by comparison.

    And night deposit doors were quite the little bit of engineering – you just can’t see it.

      Yeah, for a while, banks were very intimidating. I like that in a place that’s holding money for me.

    I love the reflection, and the building looks like it’s stunning with it’s colonial architecture. I love that style.

    FYI, I am milking the book I bought that you wrote. I’m on chapter 23. Grant just arrived, and Corrie is as looney as ever. I hope Mitch has a good time away for the night. 🙂
