William Smith, Thirty different drafts of Guinea (London, 1727?), plate 5.

Note the location of the "New Barracks" (center right) and "another slave house" (upper center). Smith made his survey for the Royal African Company which claimed the fort. For another architectural drawing of this fort, based on a survey close to 30 years earlier, see image "PRO-1".
