Nice synopsis. You missed a clue.

The value of the seafood nickname depends on how much arcane history you know.

You are on the right path.

The horizontal pane above and behind this thing:



Is that a window in an observation room? And if so is this in a bunker to protect observers if something goes wrong, or protect them when the thing is working properly?

You know a better picture would have been nice. THat thing that looks like an observation room could be a ventilation duct ...

I don't no what the horizontal object is behind it. But it surely is not a means of observing it when it operates.

Actually, I haven't run across too many pics of this thing. There is a video. Not a bunker. Was termed a "cab".

Was the facility this is housed in destroyed when it was 'operated"?

And was this located someplace that sounds like something I like seeing women in but get out of more?
