Mother’s have always been known for trying to steer their children in the right direction. I have a door this week that shows the worst result from a life of trouble.
I first caught a glimpse of it here as I was capturing “Academy Boarding House” at Arrow Rock, Missouri.
It’s really not too far from the boarding house. Just down the hill a bit.
I am glad my husband was willing to shut the door for me. I was kind of reluctant. Things break when I touch them. You can see we were treated with 2 doors. But I’m pretty sure both were air-conditioned. Well-ventilated is a more sophisticated way of expressing that I suppose.
The modern roof is being held down with stablilizers. I imagine a good wind would topple the structure pretty easily otherwise. It’s surprising it is still standing to be perfectly honest.
Here’s an inside view. Not sure where the lighting came from? There weren’t any windows. Only that little hole at the top. Spooky!
Calaboose is the title they give for this building and it means Big Cage. I find it rather amusing that the prisoner had enough street smarts to know he’d be upsetting all the students in the nearby boarding house. I can imagine they were kept awake til the wee hours of the morning with all that racket.
Thursday Doors, implemented by Norm 2.0 is a place to see doors from all over the world by simply finding the blue frog in his latest post on the subject here and clicking. You’ll see a list of entrants for this week and I encourage you to visit them for a wide variety of beauty we find simply in ‘doors’. They’re pretty awesome people too!
