The Diving Museum_003 - 19 July 2013
The Diving Museum (Historical Diving Society) is located in the No. 2 Battery in Gosport, an interesting and historical building in its own right. One of several external exhibits is a German 1939 Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) built by Neufeldt and Kuhnke. It had caught my eye earlier but I wanted to avoid photographing a mostly white object when the July sun was at its height. I returned in the rich light of a summer evening to get a better but still imperfect shot. This shot is intended to give more prominence to part of the fascinating building which was part of the Victorian coastal defences including the local and better known Palmerston forts.
