what a fantastic doorway. I love art deco.
That is spectacular. The art-deco has a tinge of native indian, yes?What does the V stand for?
Very colorful. I was going to comment on the Art Deco and then saw your description. Definitely well preserved.
Oh my what beautiful doors Tulsa has. My immediate reaction was Egyptian influence but then I saw your reader's comment about Native American and realised my error.
All are beautiful!
Well done indeed! I photographed some of the details of these doors last fall. I don't think I ever captured the full doors though. Just love the color and detail of the art deco work. When I was a kid, this was still a farmers market building.
This has got to be one of the best entrances I've ever seen in my entire life!Here's my WW entry for the week.Happy WW!
Amazing colors! It looks like they have been well taken care of too.
@Sukhmandir- This was originally a farmer's market. Now it is several things to include an Indian store and a pizza place. It is actually quite plain inside with a great exterior.@Julie- I don't know what the middle name of these gentleman was.Art Deco incorporates many decorative geometric designs borrowed from many sources to include Mayan, Aztec, Native American, and Ancient Greece. Tulsa has a number of examples of Art Deco buildings created in the 1920s and 30s when Tulsa was flush with oil money. As usual Wikipedia has an excellent article. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Deco
Love the colors! Could be Guatemala or Mexico :-)
Wow! Now that's certainly different. Definitely not expected! Very ornate. I agree with Julie. It seems to have a tinge of native Indian...
The middle name was Valord. My mother was a manager at that store in 1971. One of the first woman Supermarket managers in Oklahoma.
V is for Valord. Thank you TulsaMom. The mystery is solved.
That door is absolutely gorgeous.
