Hello everyone, any ideas on what this piece might be, looking at drain pipe in background I think small bore, maybe 47mm or so? Thanks a lot

It reminds me of some Hotchkiss 47mm or 57mm pieces. But I am just wild guessing

Where is this located?

That might be the first US AA gun.

I searched for 1910 balloon gun and got a citation from a 1911 Army-Navy Gazette listing ongoing projects and procurements. One was the 1910 carriage at RIA.

Where is this beast now?
