Fish-Eye View of the Living Quarters at Fort Matanzas

This is a fish-eye view of the interior of the officer's quarters at Fort Matanzas. The wooden ladder provides access to the scuttle, on the roof of the observation deck. There is a bunk and table at the end of the room. The furnishings were used by one officer, possibly a lieutenant or even a sergeant, for sleeping, eating and socializing. The fort is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as Fort Matanzas National Monument.
