I’m not entirely certain about this, but I believe this is an anchor point for pulling cannons in order to aim them? It was taken at Fort Taber in New Bedford, Massachusetts, which was an active fort beginning sometime around the mid 1800’s.
A lookout tower built to watch for German Submarines during World War II, one of many that can be found along the New England coast. This one is in Westport, Massachusetts and there are 3 or 4 others in the next few towns over. The towers were once accessible, but years of vandalism have forced them to be locked down, the doors reinforced, and in some cases cemented over permanently.
Still digging through some old film photos and really thinking about getting in a shoot or photowalk using black and white film. I like the whole look and feel of b&w, and do have a few rolls in the fridge that need to come out of hiding…maybe this weekend.
