Mid-century Modern Door

This door graces a mid-20th century ranch house in Southwestern Nebraska.  I had to photograph it when I saw a “For Sale” sign in the yard and determined that no one was actually living in the house.  An unfortunate storm door could not completely obscure the whimsical circle-motif glazing.  I’d be willing to bet that the new owner will be sending this door to the landfill and replacing it with some ubiquitous fake “Craftsman” style door from a Big Box retailer.  I’ll be keeping an eye on this place and plan to photograph it again in one year to see if my jaded prediction pans out.  I hope I’m wrong.  Until then, here it is in all of its extant glory:
