Washington Navy Yard, Washington, D.C.
Old weapons on exhibit in East Willard Park, circa Summer 1978. This area was rebuilt to another design in 1981-82, with the artifacts rearranged. Many of them, including all the missiles, were removed in or before the year 2000.
The gun in the center is a 10-inch Brooke smoothbore from CSS Columbia. A Confederate 5-inch Whitworth rifle is at right, and a double-banded 7-inch Brooke rifle (captured on CSS Tennessee) is at left.
A prototype launcher for "Terrier" missiles is behind these guns. In the center background is a "Regulus II" missile. Buildings 111 and 106 are in the distance.
This photograph was received by the Naval Photographic Center in January 1979.
