Wordless Wednesday - Doors to Mid-Continent Tower

The main entrance to the Mid-Continent Tower at 401 South Boston Avenue, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Built originally as the 16 story Cosden Building in 1918, in 1984 a new 20-story tower was cantilevered over it.  The entire project was designed to resemble the style of the Cosden Building as closely as possible, giving the impression of a unified whole even though the two sections of the building were constructed 66 years apart.

I like those doors. They look like a great place to find reflections.

From back alleys to posh front doors - love the contrast between Tuesday and Wednesday posts. My first reaction though, I'd hate to be the person who has to polish all that brass!

Very nicely captured. Has the tour begun?

Gotta wonder if that is from the days of deco or if it's just a retro version.

Have a great Wednesday!
