I'm crossing my fingers that the reduced size PDF will upload. This article "Where Long Tom Was Made" appears in The Strand Magazine, Volume XIX April 1900 No. 112. Page 494

https://archive.org/details/sim_strand-magazine_1900-04_19_112

It details the manufacturing process of the Creusot works and other information about Boer Armaments.
I've extracted one picture but there are others that could be recovered from the PDF.


I think I managed to insert the file:
