Note ID: JL56
Weather Conditions: Sunny, mid 80s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/21/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Northeast Bedroom and Bath (E) / Family Room (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of prior wallpaper hidden by partitions and ceiling of walk-in closet. Wallpaper pattern is clusters of roses evenly spaced. On north and east walls above lower ceiling of closet, the rose wallpaper is obscured by what appears to be black soot extending 2' to 3' down from the ceiling, possibly due to the 1920s fire.

Notes: Video and digital photos of southeast corner bathroom within original house where evidence of three ceilings exist--the just demolished bathroom ceiling at 8' high, an earlier plaster and metal lath ceiling (with a decorative wallpaper border) about 1 1/2' above the bathroom ceiling, and a still earlier (probably original) plaster and riven lath ceiling at the underside of the ceiling joists. The earliest plaster ceiling has a small wood crown molding that is painted green with the east wall plaster, while the ceiling plaster is painted off-white.

Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/21/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Private Dining Room, Bathroom, and Powder Room (E) / Bedroom and Bathroom #3 (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of southeast corner closet where an earlier ceiling and south wall finish is visible above the closet ceiling. The earlier plastered south wall is painted green and has an apparent wallpaper border just below the ceiling that is composed of red roses (different from the rose patterned wallpaper in the northeast corner discussed above). The earlier plaster ceiling is painted off-white along with a small crown molding that appears to be different than the crown molding above the adjacent bathroom. At the west end of this south plaster wall above the closet ceiling, there is a another wallpaper that is separated by an apparent partition ghost line. This other wallpaper is beige with a white pattern of flowers within a medallion-type framework.
