The wall forms part of the loft above Michael Rubel's private room, one of the first things he built as Rubel Castle was beginning to form.
Michael's mother Dorothy liked to host lots of parties. Hollywood celebrities came to the Packing House. Dorothy was good friends with the famous fan dancer and actress, Sally Rand. Jack Benny came, and Bob Hope, even Alfred Hitchcock. There was usually dancing and a small orchestra.
Michael was not a party guy.
So he began to build himself a retreat where he could dream of his ambition.
There's something poignant about this little room. The loft above it is reached by a rickety ladder. There's nothing up there now but the bottle wall, some dust and a rug. But Michael's ambition surrounds it, in the form of his Castle.
We'll look at some of the antique Castle vehicles next time.
