No doubt, the buildings that Smith and Garwood (Hendon, too) visited in July 1993 were present in 1991.  But, that is not the question.  The question is:  Were these buildings present in 1977, which is the date that Garwood said he saw US POWs there?   This link will take you to a line drawing from photography of 17 June 1989.
