An interesting early photograph of military maneuvers.
Three British naval ships are firing cannons during practices. In the lower left corner a man is looking to the event. Part of an unknown harbor is visible on the right. Possibly made in Portsmouth, England.

ca. 17 x 21,5 cm

Oval albumen print slightly faded. Some waviness due to the original mounting on the album page.

Rare topic, beautiful scenic composition.
