Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

In 1940 a 60 inch searchlight was installed in camouflage emplacements such as this one disguised as a boathouse to prevent identification by sea or air. Used to light up the harbour with wide,dispersed beams of light,allowing quick-firing guns to sight on torpedo boats.
