Load Bearing Wall in Attic

I have a 1930 house with a finished attic. I want to know if the walls that make up the doorway are load bearing, so I can remove the division between the rooms. I'm thinking it isn't as this division between the rooms probably wasn't there in 1930. I will take a closer look on the other floors to see if the beams go down to the basement, but I don't think they do.

You have too many convoluted spans for us to determine an answer to your question, without being on site. It appears the walls were added post construction, but it is always best to spend a little money to engage a structural engineer and have their blessings before such a project is taken on.
