The Cottages – Thursday Doors

These early spring days with sunshine are reason enough to walk about, adding door photos is a bonus. This time I focused on the “cottages” and these are nothing like a lake or mountain cottages. These homes are typically one floor with attic and sometimes basement space. One family lived in the building and were one step above the factory or shop workers. Perhaps a supervisor or manager. Most are mixed in with the 3 flat apartment houses.

Here is a row of 8 houses. These are typically brick (after the Chicago fire) and decorated but not elaborate.

Today many of these are turned into 2 or 3 apartments. They have dormers added to the attic space and often a door added for access to a basement/garden apartment. Here’s this week’s door assortment.
