Cupboards Were Bare

This cabinet is only a half-inch deep, and I have no idea why. It's unlikely that
anything is hidden inside it since the wall it's installed in would only allow for
a few more inches of storage room.

Vince, I removed your comment because I won't tolerate any untoward suggestions about Mrs. Winchester on this blog. However, you do raise some interesting points, and I've answered all of your other comments.

As for your question in the deleted comments: Yes, the bathroom doors have windows in them. Some of these are later additions, put their to allow tours to see inside the bathrooms without touching them.

All of the original bathroom doors do have windows, and curtain fixtures to preserve privacy. The windows were useful for two reasons: to provide light, and to allow Mrs. Winchester's nurses to check on her (she was in poor health for much of the time she lived in the mansion).

Hey there. I stumbled into your blog while doing a search on the Winchester home and have steadily followed. I miss the updates! I'm from Ohio and have been visiting vicariously through this blog of yours...don't quit on me now!
