I have an old set of plans (1920s) for a hazen thermometer shelter that was used by the national weather service from the late 1800s till the 1960s

The bottom half of the shelter is no problem, but the ornamental top is a “cutaway” drawing/view that i need help in getting measurements and a better understanding of.

Can anyone help me make a better drawing of it ? or recommend someone or a company that can produce better plans of the ornamental top ?

I found this online, it has a couple of photos, so it should be pretty easy to scale off of that to figure out the exact size for the top of the house.

Looks like they just used 1/2” x 1/2” hardware cloth for the screen.
