INSPECTION REPORT

OUTER GATE ORDNANCE



There are two iron cannon tubes set in concrete mounts

immediately north of the coquina pylons at the north entrance

to the City from U.S. 1. The tubes are mounted upside down and

both have large drain holes drilled through from the outside to

the bore.

The tube on the east side is marked 1847 on one trunnion

end and P over JSC on the other. The exterior is in fair

condition, but the bore is heavily rusted.

The tube on the west side of the highway is marked 1848 on

one trunnion end and JSC on the other. Its condition is similar

to the one on the east side.

The inspection was made December 20, 1988.



Recommendations



1. Conduct sufficient documentary research to identify the

pieces.

2. Clean and apply rust-preventive finish.

3. Construct new and more appropriate mounts.

4. Place identifying plaques next to the pieces.
