The Cross House
What are they?
What were they for?
When did whatever they held get removed?
Will the mystery ever be revealed??????????????????
In the 1920s the bathroom was converted into a kitchen. In 1950 the room was converted back into a bathroom (when the house was turned into a motel). At some point the room was gutted to the studs, and only the encaustic tile floor remained (thank God). Today, the room is still just studs.
I have shown these notches to a ton of people. Nobody has a clue why the notches are there. They seem original. Obviously, the studs were notched to hold…something. But what? And why are there three rows?
I am hoping that by posting this somebody with an old house will write: “Hey! We have the same notches in our old bathroom! And the notches were for….”
The person who first responds with the correct answer to the Great Bathroom Mystery gets a prize.
And a big kiss from me.
