It's a canon/artillery mount - the circle thingy is the rail it traveled on, so that it could be aimed at any point along the azimuth. So, what do I get for being right? Cash in denominations of $10 or more is acceptable. But I'll take bragging rights.
Sonarman is correct. Bragging rights are duly awarded.Sorry, no cash.It is a picture of a Panama mount for one of the 155mm Seacoast Defense guns of Battery 402, Fort Schwatka located on Mount Ballyhoo in Dutch Harbor, AK.
Aww.. Sonarman won, I was going to guess a neolithic alidade from a giant lost ship.
