The Cross House
I was breathless with excitement!
But…where was the tub? It was no longer in place. Did Bob remove it?
Even if the tub was long gone, at least I had an image. Now I knew what to look for!
The next day a thought popped into my head: Is the tub in the garage?
Just after buying the house, I had Justin haul out all loose bits and store them in the garage. Certainly I would have recalled THIS tub but I had no memory of it.
I was desperately clinging to 1894, or a few years before, being revealed.
So, not the original tub.
Still, it is a lovely historic tub. It most certainly dates from the 1929 renovation when the second-floor was converted into apartments by Scott Mouse, Sr. It is odd though that the original tub was not retained. Perhaps it was too long in a reconfigured space?
As I pondered the tub I realized it looked familiar. Ah! There are two even smaller matching tubs in the en-suite bathrooms to the Round and Hexagon bedrooms. These bathrooms were also added in 1929, and the tubs are a cute-as-a-button 4-feet long. I am keeping them in situ.
Well, what to do with the 4-1/2-foot tub?
My mind ponders again…
