Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada
This "scary" door is the first Canadian door on this blog. Sault Ste. Marie's history was been moulded to a large extent by it's location on the banks of the St. Mary's River and its rapids. The shores of the rapids became a natural stopping point on any journey east or west. The construction of a canal and lock in 1895 to bypass the rapids provided an all-Canadian route from the Atlantic Ocean to the head of Lake Superior. The industrial empire created by Francis Hector Clergue spurred local development in the late 1890's and early 1900's. Directly, or indirectly, he created pulp and paper mills, hydro-electric plants, rail and marine transportation, mines and a steel plant. And it is close to this steel plant where they’ve emptied out and boarded up houses for demolition and wher you can find this house and it's creepy door. I hope not all Canadian doors are like this.
