THANKS FOR THE PHOTOS ALBERT!!!
I had seen some photos of the upstairs somewhere before, but these are so much better and clearer!! It certainly would be nice to be able to tour the upstairs, but as EPE has said before, to do so would create quite a problem in terms of emergency exits, access for handicapped visitors, etc.
I can see their argument for emergency exits, having to add fire escapes and such which could alter the appearance of the mansion. And it would be a shame for handicapped visitors to not be able to see the upstairs, but the way things are set up right now, they can't go down to the lower level to see the lounge and pool room either, so I don't know how valid an argument that one is.
Let's hope that management decides to open the upstairs someday soon....PREFERABLY before the ticket sales start to decline and they need to resort to "gimmicks" to attract visitors!
