Wind Me Up

Near the south-west corner of La Citadelle in Québec City is a large gun manufactured by Krupp, a Prussian company (interesting origin for a cannon on Canadian soil) that has since rebranded and now makes coffee machines. In any case, old machines of war (particularly projectile launchers) are interesting because of how intricate some of the control mechanisms are – seeing a hand-wheel on anything that can punch a hole through a wall is kind of amusing to me.
