By Matt Breslin, The Washington TimesA new series of photos from the kitchen of a historic mansion in the Catskills is capturing a little-discussed but significant detail: the stained-glass door that appears to be an old wooden shutter door.
The photos, taken by photographer Josh Smith, show a stained-greens-and-fence door that looks like a wood crossbuck, but is actually a wooden shutter shutter door on a postcard from the 1880s.
The door, which is only slightly older than a postcards, was discovered in the attic of the house in 1912, and was recently identified as a stained glass door by the state of New York.
The old shutter door has been the subject of speculation for years.
Some say it is from a barn that belonged to a former family, while others believe it’s from a stainedglass painting.
It’s been the topic of numerous research papers and books, and some have speculated that the door is part of a stainedwood painting.
However, no one has ever seen the door in its natural state.
In a blog post, Smith, who is based in New York, said he thought he’d see the door if he visited the house.
So, he set out to find the actual door and photograph it.
Smith said he was looking for a place to photograph the stained glass doors, so he chose the attic.
The house is owned by the family of the late Mary Ellen Cogswell, who was the former editor of the New York Times, and it’s located in the woods near the intersection of Forest and Washington Streets.
The family has owned the property since 1874.
Smith was inspired to photograph stained-woods-and to photograph a stained door, after he and his wife, Joanna Smith, discovered the door while visiting the property in 2012.
The couple said they’d seen the doorway in the basement of their home, but had never noticed it.
When they returned to their home on December 15, 2012, they noticed that the stained door was missing.
Smith said he wanted to find it so he could photograph it in person, so the couple called the New Jersey state Archives, the New Hampshire State Archives and the New England Historical Society.
When he finally got there on January 6, 2013, the door was gone.
Smith, who has a master’s degree in history from Rutgers University, said that while he had a couple of ideas about what it might be, he didn’t think he’d actually find the door, and that the house’s owners would never have let him photograph it, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Smith and Joanna said they were pleased to learn that the photo is real, and said they are still amazed that they’ve been able to find a photo of the door that wasn’t photoshopped.
“This door is a real thing, and when we went looking for it, we thought, ‘Why isn’t anyone photographing it?’,” Joanna told the paper.
Smith also said he hopes the photos will help others understand what he calls the “secret of the stained wood doors.”
