Description:

Color print with two views. The upper view depicts a military encampment of two rows of barracks with smaller buildings between them. Additional buildings and tents are on the sides and behind the central compound. The lower view depicts a semi-circle of houses with a larger one flanked on each side by two smaller ones. The grounds in front are formally laid out with walkways leading to each of the houses. Auxillary buildings surround the semi-circle. There is a faded key to the buildings in the lower margin.
