Quote from: galacticprobe on Feb 13, 2012, 07:08 amAnother (somewhat obvious) question is about the door. It's smooth on the outside and has the stiles on the inside (the opposite of just about every other box seen in period photos). Was that door ever turned around at some point - possibly by accident during a repair/replacement - being remounted wrong way round?Dino.
