Fridge access doors?

Hi,

Hoping someone can help - are these two little doors just aft of the entrance for access the back of the fridge?

Sorry the pics are sideways ...

Don't you have a key?
Refrigerator access is a single door.
These look like battery compartments.

Hi, and thanks.

We don't have the keys, but the battery compartment and access door is on the opposite side. We have the interior completely apart (inner panels off) and there has never been any structure behind this other than either a cabinet/ice box? (we think originally) or a fridge. In the attached pic you can see what it looked like inside before the panels came off. Notice the air intake on the floor and above is the fridge vent (not shown, sorry).

These little doors are no more than 8x10 inches.

BTW, hope to make it down there next year ... my hometown oh so long ago.

At first we thought maybe it was so someone could stock up the icebox from outside without having the key to the door (milkman/bread man), but that's always seemed too far-fetched.

Okay, now that I see it, the lower opening could be correct for the access to the backside of the refer in a1963 Sovereign. PM Fred Caldwell to explain the top opening. He is the world's foremost authority on Vintage Airstreams of that period.
Are you sure the upper vent (Not shown) is for the refer? Is it an oblong rectangular hole or a round hole? Some of these came with a panel ray heater.
Also check and find out when Airstream evolved from Ice Box to Refer. Not sure what came standard in 1963
