Battery Farnsworth, with the foundation of Walbach Tower in the right foreground.
The battery has just been completed, except for the iron railings along the stairs and parapet.
The two guns are 8-inch breech-loading rifles, mounted on disappearing-type carriages.
The west wall and gate of Fort Constitution can just be made out in the left background through the fog.
