    I remember my highschool had a door like this. It started near the ceiling of the gym and opened up in the cafeteria. But the cafeteria ceiling was much lower than the gym so half of the door was in the cafeteria ceiling.

    I love that it’s part of the window, making one wonder if it was supposed to be a double window or double doors.

    This is actually a fairly common feature on older homes. In order to trick burglars, the inside of the door would be marked “treasury” or something, and outside would be a big drop, and spikes were commonly installed at the bottom. It’s called an Irish Elevator.

    There were probably stairs there.
    I take it the “Irish Elevator” is an American thing? I ask as I’ve never heard that expression before and we call them Lifts.
