These 32lbs and 42lbs canons made up the 1850's armourment used in Sydney Harbour.
Research on this project was done as part of the overall project.

32 lbs Canon at 1:11 scale. An example of the barrel can be found at Parramatta Park.
42 lbs Traverse Canon at 1:11 scale. This model shows the additional tools required to make the canon function.
An excellent example of this canon can be seen at Dawes Point in Sydney Harbour.
