According to Garcia y Garcia, a plaster cast of a portion of the entrance doorway with two shutters (leafs), half closed, with lock, door-bolt, hinge and iron doorlock, and provenanced from the doorway at I.3.24, used to be seen in the Antiquarium prior to the 1943 bombing.

On the left, modern wooden reconstruction of a doorway, drawn by Gusman, on display on the rear wall of Room 1 of the Antiquarium, before the 1943 bombing. This clearly showed the iron studs/nails and architrave of a typical Pompeian door with two shutters.

I.3.24 Pompeii. December 2006. Entrance on corner of  Vicolo del Menandro.  According to Della Corte, on the wall on both sides of the entrance were paintings of Mercury and Hercules. He thought the house belonged to the unknown Capella, because of the graffiti, still partly legible in the 1960’s. On the left of the entrance:

L(ucium)  Ceium  Secundum  aed(ilem)
Cape
lla  rog(at)       [CIL IV 2993g]       

Capella  va(le)      [CIL IV 3200aa] and Note 3 on p.269.

I.3.24 Pompeii. 1935 photograph taken by Tatiana Warscher. According to Warscher,
“La situazione della nicchia pone la questione – se nell’atrio vi fosse oltre al piano terreno anche un primo piano giacchè essa è situata troppo in alto. I pochi avanzi pittorici sulla parete occidentale fanno pensare ad imitazione del primo stile, che la parete cioè fosse mediante fasce divisa in rettangoli oblunghi. L’esempio di questa imitazione del primo stile o “primo stile semplificato” può vedersi nell’atrio della casa del Principe di Napoli (VI.15.7/8).
Sopra la porta del cubicolo v’è una piccola finestra”.
See Warscher, T, 1935: Codex Topographicus Pompejanus, Regio I, 3: (no.53), Rome, DAIR, whose copyright it remains.  
(translation: "The situation of the niche raised the question – if in the atrium there was ever an upper floor as the niche was located too high. A few painted remains on the west wall suggested an imitation of the first style, divided into bands by rectangular oblongs.  The example of this imitation of the first style or "first simplified style" can be seen in the lobby of the Casa del Principe di Napoli (VI. 15.7/8).  Over the doorway of the cubiculum there was a small window ".
