White Door

Once a piece of the campus of the Maine College of Art, the Clapp House is now a part of the PMA, Portland Museum of Art. It sits at 97 Spring Street and was built in 1832 as the private residence of Charles Q. Clapp and family. This morning a few shadows are falling along this side doorway, while the front facade is bathed in strong sun. It's one of my favorite buildings in the city.

  8. The yellow walls, the gold geometric tiles - this has such charm. You could have "reblogged" this from one of the Italians.
