Description (Brief)
Black and white print depicting a large cylindrical stone structure supported by seven columns with arches between them. Buildings and a body of water are visible in the background. Two men stand in the foreground looking at the structure and musing that some think that the ruin had been a fortress and can never admit that it had been a mill.
