Battery Spencer III

Battery Spencer III

The fog rolls in at sunset at Battery Spencer, perched on a bluff on top of the Marin Headlands. Battery Spencer is about eye-level with the top of the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge. Back during the early 1900’s, Battery Spencer was one of the main protection points for the San Francisco harbor. It featured multiple 12” guns that were manned by the military and a few buildings for housing the generators and shells. It was operated on and off until World War II when a lot of it was scrapped for war efforts.
