I seriously didn’t plan my previous post to go the way that it did. I had planned to discuss my university’s “Coffin Door” so here's a quick post.
architects of the Victorian period included
elements some might consider to be a bit quirky. Personally, I love it.
The door is at the very front of campus. The building is pictured below. I haven't seen any other doors quite like this... but I can't say that I've looked too hard either. On campus, the students have a legend that any undergraduate who walks through the coffin-door won't graduate. If they can resist the temptation of entering or exiting it, their tradition is to line up and walk through after graduation. Because it's at the front of the university, there really isn't much need to walk through it anyway. It's still a fine tradition though.
