Click here to see another gun from the ALMIRANTE OQUENDO at Palmyra, New York.

This gun, removed from the ALMIRANTE OQUENDO rests at the Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, Missouri.  The site overlooks the Mississippi River. The gun was installed in this location at the time of the St. Louis World's Fair (1904). The gun was a favorite photo prop for World War II navy vets living at the Jeffereson Barracks in many of the old wooden barracks buildings that were converted to housing after the war.
