Gun Tool Session

This is a nice shot by Jason from photography of the three recently conserved Dahlgren gun tools: a sponge on the left, a Robinson worm in the middle, and a shot ladle on the right. Handling the objects during the photo session reminded us of how fit the gunners had to be to do their work. The ladle weighs 22 pounds empty and without the handle. The sponge head is 15 pounds. Ouch.
