This is an original press photo. The last step, firing as a shell is shown at the right. Intricate instruments test muzzle velocity, etc, if the gun passes the tests, it is ready to be issued to a battleship. Proof firing a 16MM gun at Dahlgren, note the network of wiring. The contact breaking as the projectile passes each fire enables the muzzle velocity of the gun to be washed out.Photo measures 9.75 x 7.75inches. Photo is dated 4-10-1938.
