Sunday 13th July 1919, in preparation for the following day's Victory Parade through Paris, this is a display of captured enemy cannon displayed on the Champs Elysées roundabout. It is original colour (not colourised)

Question.
What is the difference between the cannon on display and those at the time of the Napoleonic Wars?

Might be an artefact of the photo but they look like they are blocked at the end, and rusty!

And most of all length.

Here's another question. Is it customary to fly the flag of your putative foe alongside your own at a victory parade?
