The Farley and Osgood gun batteries at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro, CA. The guns located here during WWII could launch a shell over 14 miles away!

These 14" disappearing guns could fire a 1560 pound projectile 14 miles out into the Catalina Channel. However, full caliber firing practice was rare because of the damage caused by the firing concussions to near-by residences. Battery Osgood's gun was fired only 116 times and Battery Farley's fired 121 times.

I called this "Blink Blink" because the gun batteries look like eyes from this aerial view.
