Front doors are one of the most fascinating aspects of buildings. It is a concept that has been around for hundreds of thousands of years, with each period in history reflecting its own individual style. From early antiquity to Greek and Roman, to Saxon and Gothic to Georgian, Victorian and modern; each has left their own individual mark on the evolution of the doorway. As well as communicating a great deal about the history of architecture, they can often reveal stories of the individuals or families living inside. Through elaborate forms, complex patterns and intricate mouldings, they were an outlet for showing off good taste, wealth and individuality.
The hand drawn perspective captures a mixture of elegant Georgian Townhouses, such as no.17 Gay Street, no.23 Royal Crescent & no. 20 The Circus. It celebrates the monumental architectural craft of Bath Abbey, Victoria Art Gallery and the Guildhall. It also highlights hidden gems in the city, like ‘Good Hope Prior Park Cottages’ and ‘Holy Trinity, Church Road’.
