Great Pulteney Street Hotel Ballrooms
This was the first bookcase I did with a secret door, although I went back to take some photos and video with my digital camera I made the bookcase in 1998 and according to the client has worked perfectly. The door leads to a small flat.
The hotel was converted into apartments and to the right of the bookcase are columns which you can see in the black and white photo was how it looked in it's hay day. I built another less grand bookcase to the right of the columns in the adjacent room which you can see here.
