Morgan, 1833, isn't this fabulous stone and brick work?
?? looks like fireplace, except for that window, or is that a gun opening???
Just liked this. The light coming through the doors and windows, shining on the brick.
Leaching salts or minerals
The leaking salts and minerals from the ceiling are actually creating stalagtites and stalagmites. Look at the floor, the bumps, the wet. Cavelike, eh??
These stairs have a 12.5 inch rise! I could hardly get down them. WOW
Train tracks, will allow turning of cars.
Another view of track turning device
View from above of track.
Looking across the fort. Stunning architecture.
Cannons mounted here.
Some kind of timber, maybe a door frame?? It was up high.
Part of a hinge for door. Isn't it great??
Bricks that are seriously degraded. In the museum we saw a reference to substandard bricks being delivered to the site. Not sure these were some of those, but still interesting.
Isn't this a fabulous door??
Anchor, note oil rig in the background.
Overall view of part of the fort.
