Side-hinged doors were the norm for middle-class garages of the Twenties; however, more expensive homes often featured sliding garage doors suspended from bypassing overhead tracks, which could accommodate heavier doors, and hence heavier ornamentation. Alas, since these doors tend to become increasingly recalcitrant over time and also do not easily accept electric operators, many have been replaced by sectional overhead doors.  This simple square-paneled example is a lucky survivor.
