Squint Shot 020712

We are now on the second floor of the Harmon building. As I've mentioned the last couple of days, this particular visit to the upper floors was with a curious friend. If you look back through the squint shots for the last week or so, you will see where she found a shade still workable, attached to the canopy where the Masons and members of the Independent Order of Odd-Fellows used to meet. I'm glad she looked a little closer than I ever had.

So the same thing happened here. A heavy green oilcloth hangs over a slatted door. She lifted it up to expose the slats to see how this door must have been very secure at one time from any break-ins. There are even two locks on it. It is an inside door so I'm curious what may have been in this room and why was it so important to lock it in or those out from it.

We let the oilcloth drop back in place and it was obvious there was no way to see through the door. Very interesting to me.
Any thoughts?
