The cannons were presented to the City on Wed 9th September 1857, the anniversary of the Battle Sebastopol. From a fabulous album of photographs titled Old Views of Bath and District, HG Brampton. The album comprises 56 medium to large photographs of Bath from around the 1890s, each one pasted onto board as was the fashion at the time. Each print was probably obtained commercially as several have appeared elsewhere. This print was taken by John Poole of East Twerton (No. 41).
