archival study from 2006
This stockade is surrounded by gun emplacements in The Marin Headlands - built to defend the Golden Gate from attack by Japanese warships during World War II. All of the hills and dunes on either side of The Gate are covered with scores of these gun positions. Our model behind the bars is Emi.
If only the men who slept nearby, maintained, and fired these guns - often in cold and wind and fog - could see their duty station on this day, some 68 years later.
