INSPECTION OF FLAGSTAFF MONUMENT BASE


ANDERSON CIRCLE

ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA


PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTY ASSOCIATES

September 20, 1988

A report on the condition of this monument prepared by the
Associates, and dated July 23. 1988 recommended an inspection of
the flagstaff base to determine its structural integrity. The
consultants believed upon preliminary inspection that the bronze
cylinder surrounding the base of the flagstaff would have to be
removed to make that determination.
In preparing to preparing to remove the cylinder, however,it was
found that by the use of a strong light and a mirror, a
satisfactory inspection of the flagstaff base could be made
without removing the cylinder. That inspection was performed in
the early morning of September 20, 1988, at a time of day when
light conditions sere most conducive to an inspection of the
space.

The inspection revealed that the socket and it's supporting
masonry are in excellent condition. There was no evidence of
corrosion. No cracks or other deformities appear in the
supporting masonry inside the cylinder. It appears that the
socket is isolated from the masonry by a lead collar
approximately one-half inch in width. The lead collar effectively
isolates the galvanized socket from the effects of the
surrounding concrete.

On the basis of this inspection, it is our considered opinion
that the flagstaff base is structurally sound and that no further
testing is warranted at this time.
