Chief Tirrell talking with the contractors. Note on left side of picture, the stairs to upstairs are gone and the surrounding enclosure for the cellar stairs is gone. Amazing how large the area looks now with that enclosure gone.
The hole is the cellar stairs and this area was where the enclosure and the stair case to go upstairs was.
