Fort Sumter Masonry

I’ve been meaning to blog about the work I am doing at Fort Sumter in Charleston, SC. Here’s an image to get it started… literally a screen shot of the hybrid drawing of the fort’s storied masonry walls:

Fort Sumter

Last month I shot a series of photographs of the walls to capture them as they stand today: a pile of bricks from a series of periods as the fort has been built up and beaten back down more than a time or two…

In the end, my drawings and photographs will be assembled together as “hybrid drawings” (measured drawings overlaid with rectified photography) that will add to the drawings made by HABS in 1991.  They will serve as the basis for an Historic Structures Report commissioned by the National Park Service.
