Complex 15 blockhouse periscopes Zoom

Personnel would use these periscopes to view launch operations. This blockhouse (as well as the blockhouses at its sister Complexes) were built with three periscopes, but only two remain here. While later blockhouses were still built with periscopes, their use was largely replaced by closed circuit television.
