Photographer's Note

"It has eleven doorways in front and one at each end. The doors are all gone, and the wooden lintels over them have fallen. The interior is divided longitudinally by a wall into two corridors, and these again, by cross walls or partitions, into oblong rooms. Every pair of these rooms, the front and back, communicate by a doorway exactly opposite a corresponding doorway in the front.

The (2) principal apartments in the centre, with three doorways (2, 3, and 4 from tight) opening upon the terrace, are twenty feet long. The one in front is eleven feet six inches wide, and the inner one thirteen feet..... In these two apartments we took up our abode."
