Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but if you Google Fort de chartres powder magazine images there are some pics of the one there. It is the round roofed one in the second row of pics and if you click on it and go to view the page there are pictures of the interior and outside. This is a reconstruction of the original structure in Illinois. Hope this helps. Wayne

wow; that's quite an impressive place. a bit elaborate for my purposes, but I could pick some details and with a bit of selective compression work them into a scheme.

thanks for the assist.

No problem, I do historical reenactments and they have an event there every june. It is a partially reconstructed French fort and historical site. Wayne
