Mr Monkey at Fort Napoleon, 15th September

"It must have been quite horrid in here when they finished it"

Mr Monkey thought that the barracks area seemed quite light and roomy, until he found out that a lot of the big arched windows had been put in after the fort stopped having any military purpose, to make the barracks brighter. Originally, the only large windows were those facing into the central courtyard. Mr Monkey tried to peer through a gun slit, originally the only windows on the outside of the fort, but he couldn't see much, and it didn't let much light in.
