The Advertiser had this awesome picture today: 12" mortars atop Diamondhead from 1916.
I think all that remains is the wall and the small 4' crawl space you have to crawl through to get to the top. The big guns are long gone, replaced by hundreds of daily tourists looking at the 360º views of the beaches. It sure is pretty up there, and historical too! Cool.
