Searchlight Housing at Brownstone Battery
Searchlight Housing at Brownstone Battery
This is one of two searchlight houses at this World War Two Battery. Each searchlight had a 26 inch carbon arc projector. As you can see from the view, they were looking out at the shipping in the bay, not into the sky.
