Schneider's Saloon Probe Photos

We're in the process of recreating a saloon once housed in 97 Orchard's basement. A team of conservators peeked behind the basement's metal and sheetrock walls for clues of its history, and sent paint and wood samples off for analysis. Here's some of the work they've done so far:

Exposing wood panelling behind the sheetrock

Charred wood indicates long-ago fire damage.
Bubbled-up paint is further evidence of a fire.

Our longtime handyman, Bob Yucikas, removes sheetrock from the ceiling.
