Re-Opening The Past
In 1929, it appears that the door was removed and the wall plastered over, as the toilet room and adjacent closet became a full bathroom for the new studio apartment in the former Sewing Room.
I have recreated the lost closet to the Sewing Room. The original toilet room will be a utility closet, and also the location for the dumbwaiter, which, inexplicably, never went to the second-floor.
But how to access this small room?
Obviously, the blocked-over door would have to be re-opened! However, the exact location could not be resurrected as new return ducts partially block the original opening. So, I had to move the opening over to the west a bit.
The new door will be short and not very wide. It will be cute! I hope Dr. Doug can scale down the proportions of an original door and make a new cute door.
With all this done, a lost feature of the house will return, albeit slightly shifted.
