More interesting, unusual doors in San Diego!

Mysterious door in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter reads: Law Office Eddie O'Hare, Esquire. It's actually the entrance to a sneaky speakeasy, containing the underground 1920's themed Prohibition Lounge!

Here’s another batch of cool door photographs, taken during my walks around San Diego.

  1. Hello Richard, I found this doing a tag search for doors.
    What an awesome collection you have here!
    As Terri mentioned on my blog I host a weekly link-up even called #ThursdayDoors where folks from all over come together to share their favorite door pics.
    Please do come by and check it out, and by all means feel free add your post to our link up list so others can find it. Just look for the blue button near the end of my post. We take entries each week from Thursday to Saturday – cheers
