Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 11 x 16.5 cm
Scope and Content
Photograph of fourteen unidentified men in suits standing behind a gun put up on a wooden pedestal, with a sign that reads, "This Gun is the First Mark VIII Anti-Aircraft Naval Gun Produced Outside England/ Athorities acknowledge this is one of the most difficult guns to make/ Initial production at this time is an achievement for the men and women of this plant who have set up the first milestone in gun armament in Western Canada/ Our task now is to speed production and built into these guns quality and accuracy that we may be proud of their performance." The company that produced this gun is believed to be the Dominion Bridge Company, at its Western Canada branch (possibly Burnaby). Plywood sheets propped up behind the men help to prevent the location from being identified.
