Stairs to nowhere
Stairs behind a false wall that lead to nowhere. Note the dust-covered bouquet on the stairs...
Looking down the stairs at the false wall
Under the stairs is a small area with shelves (left). The area was closed off with a panel that matches the wall. Once removed (right) there is a passage that apparently is for handing something from the small area to the outside (the small square is the exterior opening).
