Projects : Golden Gate Bridge Exhibit

Golden Gate Bridge Outdoor Exhibition


Maneuvering Rings

Visitors currently do not know what the large steel “doorknockers” in Batter Lancaster are. They were used to maneuver the large cannon in that area, when ropes or chains were attached to them and soldiers could tug the cannon into position.

STATUS: While not a part of the scope of this project, this exhibit was produced for the National Park Service and is currently on display in the Battery Exhibit area.
