A historical climbing photo on Big Cannon Cliff in 1932.  The cliff was named after its cannon-like shape.  However, the cannon barrel was blown up by KMT government in about 1960's due to the cannon barrel directly pointed to the mountain that was just renamed after the military dictator of that time by *ss-kissers.
