The Military Guns At Baker Beach, California

Baker Beach, California was utilized for the defense of the city of San Francisco beginning in the early 1900s.

During World War II, second generation guns were mounted on the beach. These guns were hidden, and were able to be elevated when enemy ships came closeby.
