Thursday Doors, USk: Thurman Street Face

W16 7 26 USK THURMAN FACE DOORS 01Thurman Street is a nice “hike” up into the West Hills.
Mitchell and I have been searching for good doors, and I have to say,
Great houses but such mediocre doors as to be boring!

However, many wealthy people who built these older homes had cars, and these are mostly small, buried in the side of the hill,the older garage doors built into the hills are pretty cool, and this is one.  The garage itself looks like it should belong in Southern California, very Spanish Stucco, then there is a funny plaque
over the lovely wooden doors, a bespeckled man with a bird on his head.

Makes us laugh every time….

    Well, I love your water color rendition of the door, Katie. The plaque is hysterically funny. I wonder if the owner looks like that…
