In the following images - what are the "shadows" on the apron of the gun pit. Surely this can't be camoflauge.



Description:
Chicago Tribune Pictorial Weekly 1915 Page. This Sepia Color August 22, 1915 page shows Now you See it now you don't, One of the 12 inch disappearing Guns in its pit at Fort Wright on Fishers Island, off New London, Conn. Shows big gun raised and ready to fire and moments later back in pit.

These are very similar to the markings on the batteries at Fort Strong in Boston, I believe the Hippies made them....no idea really but interesting

Period hippies (1915) or modern day?

Here’s a picture of Battery Farley at Fort MacArthur, with what appears to be a giant arrow painted on the firing platform, pointing out to sea.
