Sometimes it’s the position that a door is placed that draws your attention.
In my opinion, whoever designed this building was wanting to have a good view of 3 corners of that street. And they got it.
Formerly a “Bank” building as the sign indicates. If I’m correct in my footwork, currently a city offices location. Located in downtown Glasgow, Missouri. Listed on the National Register of Historical Buildings.

A rural Missouri town has the distinction of having a ‘World’s First’. I present the site of the first railroad all steel bridge that crosses the Missouri River into this town of 1,103 residents according to the 2010 census.
In 1880, the population was 1,841 and a port for riveroat departure/arrival. I’m sure the first sight of that new structure gave plenty of excitement to those residents during the 1878 completion. This current one is the replacement. Maybe someday I’ll happen upon a picture of the original?
Til then here’s the view of the modern version built in 1960 as it stretches across the Mighty Mo.

A simple Thursday Doors for your Friday.
While driving through Glasgow, Missouri, I asked my husband to turn around for a pit stop and this was our view for those few seconds. A few observations come to mind with the open door.
- That truck has not moved for quite some time.
- They are definitely ready for next winter and it’s only May (on the occasion of this pic)
- Or maybe they are BBQ masters and have all the wood they need for smoking some ribs. This last observation might be pushing it a bit.
Have a wonderful weekend!
