A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for September 1st is Right Under Your Nose. I'm going with a garden theme for this one. 

Continuing on with the Lebreton Gallery, here we have the BRM- 1K, an armored reconnaissance vehicle built by the Soviets.

A couple of tanks in silhouette.

And seen from the side: the Canadian Leopard. I've been in one of these before.

Nearby stands another Canadian tank, the M1917, used as a training vehicle during the Second World War. This particular one saw a second life as a logging tractor before restoration.

A powerhouse of the Second World War: the German Panzer or Panther.


  1. Oh, boy, you´ve been in one?! Must be a scary feeling.
    I was in a submarine ... twice even (different ones) - always happy to meet fresh air.

  2. My father used to repair the sighting mechanisms on tanks and other weaponry during WWII, the nearest he got to fighting!

  3. Such savage looking machines.

  4. Hello,
    The tanks are impressive war machines.
    Take care, have a great day.

  5. Wow. I didn't know they had tanks.

  6. Those armoured vehicles are death traps in my book.

  7. ..these tools of war rarely achieve peace.

  8. @Iris: it's cramped inside.

    @John: that's still service.

    @Gemel: part of their purpose.

    @Eileen: that they are.

    @Jennifer: you should visit sometime.

    @Marie: some of them ended up being precisely that.

    @Tom: true, but they do spur innovation.

  9. At the time they were impressive weapons of war, can just imagine what museum goers will think in another hundred years when they are compared to current weapons of war 😊

  10. And McDonnell's F-101 Voodoo above, I think.


  11. Funny how all this stuff is now obsolete.

  12. @Grace: who knows what the next generation of this will be.

    @RedPat: they can be.

    @Sharon: in one way or another.

    @Revrunner: yes, that's a Voodoo.

    @Red: well, the Leopard is still a contemporary tank.

  13. Armamentos que fueron protagonista de una gran guerra y que hoy podemos ver en los Museos.

  14. Amazing how quickly these were probably built ~ war motivates ~

  15. Tools of war are big and impressive.

  16. The tanks don't interest me as much as the statues but it is a beautiful museum.
