While searching for another photograph, I found these photos of the "standard" 5"/51 cal SP and 3"/50 cal AA gun mounts used on pre-WW II USN battleships that I took at the Washington Navy Yard Museum in 2001. I thought that they may be of interest to some as reference while trying to accessorize those early battlewagons.
