Friday Foto Finder; Cannon

On the seaward side of the Round House, on Point Arthur, Fremantle, is the Time Ball and its associated cannon, used in Days of Yore (Back when Yore owned everything) to indicate 1pm for ships’ captains to set their chronometers.

The Fremantle Historical Society has a daily duty.

It raises the Time Ball every day and fires the cannon below at exactly 1pm.

I was lucky enough (on my third visit) to catch the cannon firing. That smoke drifts very quickly!

Which cannon will you share with us?

Leave a comment and a link here and we can all come and see.

Next week the challenge will be to show a LEAF or LEAVES.
