Recently we’ve had to spend some time at the hospital in the nearby town of St-Junien.
It’s a comparatively modern place, although it replaced an adjacent much older and smaller institution:
It’s on the outskirts of the town but is surrounded by old houses, some of which boast rather interesting – in a decrepit kind of way – doors:
Some are better looked after than others:
But for a demonstration of what it means to be houseproud, it’s tough to beat the lace curtains on this garage:

Loved the doors! This is my kind of place! Is the old hospital there?
It is, but locked away behind that gate, boarded up and no doubt slowly falling to pieces.
Welcome back and Happy 2020 to you 🙂
The door in the second shot is my favourite from this batch of worn and weathered beauties.
Hard to say which I like the best. Although they’d look ridiculous here, the shabby doors here and that I’ve so often seen in France look perfectly fine there with the old/older buildings. Happy 2020.
Great capture. But I like address #13 the best.
