This is a cannon captured from a Spanish ship during the Spanish American war. It was set up in Seaside Park, in Bridgeport, CT as a monument to the local residents who served in the war. Apparently it was cast in Seville, in 1794. As a kid I always used to play ontop of this cannon, I’m pretty sure there are a couple pictures of it. I randomly stumbled upon this image, and it just really brought me back. I wasn’t aware of its historical significance.
