Weather Conditions: Partly cloudy, low 70s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/19/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Mansion Director (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of newly exposed door opening in east wall, north of fireplace base. Opening was covered by wood frame and gypsum board, apparently modern construction. Door opening appears original due to formed handmade brick jambs that are painted with a lintel framing system that is original. On the west side of each jamb there is a recessed corner for a wood jamb that was later removed, also typical of other original basement doors. Below the lintel framing there is brick held up by a head board that is painted and appears to be original.

Report Date: 5/20/1999
Location: Mansion - Attic
