[ Home / Federal Hill / Hallway ]
This color postcard is another photo from apparently the 1960s. The caption on the back reads:
The hallway looks a little different today. A restoration killed the wallpapers, but the furnishings are still there. The grandfather clock is still on the same landing as shown (or it was the last time I visited). A couple of the items in the hallway were moved, though the couch on the left and the hallway table on the right were both on the left side of the hall the last time I was there.
If you notice the door at the rear of the hall, you'll see it is extra wide. It's known as a "coffin door." It was wide enough to get a coffin through. The screen door at the back entrance disappeared some years ago. Federal Hill is now air-conditioned, so there's little need for a screen door. The rear wooden entrance door is original as far as I heard, and was solid as a rock.
