Additional Curiosities

Sometimes, when seeking out cannons and other artillery pieces, you find other monuments, or cannon related pieces. Here are a few of those that have crossed my path so far. 

First, a model of the Rodman Casting Process, a safer way to produce large caliber cannons. This model was produced for display in 1878.

A few days later, I came across a Korean War vintage fighter in a Memorial Park in New Kensington, next to a 3 Inch gun.

Finally, the same day as the fighter was documented, a Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter was found and documented outside of a V.F.W. in Lower Burrell.
