Excellent photo - I suspect those are naval big guns having their interrupted screw breeches fitted

According to one of the contributers :

"The gun at the center of this photo seems larger than the ones lined up in front, although from the perspective I can't be sure. Either way, I believe that gun in the center to be a 14"/50 destined for the recently launched "New Mexico" class battleships. (New Mexico, Mississippi, or Idaho) The other (presumably smaller) guns might be 5"/51's for the casemate armament."

Also if you save and then view the pic, it shows the other side of the work shop as well
