I’ve never seen this castle so I don’t know if it still stands, but the arrangement of a fortified tower OUTSIDE the walls of a military barracks seems counterproductive? An interesting scene with a sentry at the gate and a gentleman speaking to him, while along the wall on both sides are posters. I wish that this had been a Royal plate and they might have been more readable?
