SOME DOORWAYS
ARE BEST SUITED
FOR TALL, SKINNY PEOPLE!

It's not uncommon to find these
tall, narrow "shotgun" doorways
in older homes (in the south and midwest),
which were popular following the Civil War.
Their height was visually accentuated
by ascending steps and an arched transom above.

This 125-year old house is located
in the Soulard area of St. Louis.
