Good Sam Doors

James & John looking at the inside of the doors in 2007.
This picture is of the entry doors to the Chapel at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton.

These beautiful doors were constructed sometime before the First World War by your Great-great-grandfather, Edward Locker, an immigrant from Wernburg, Germany.  He was a master carpenter, as this fine craftsmanship shows.  The doors are more than 100 years old yet are still serviceable and add dignity to the Chapel.

I don't think that he did the stained glass.

Wernburg is at the teardrop "A" in the center
