The naval ship's cannons. The ship is the cruiser or even destroyer.
This footage show the twin turrets, so it's most likely Colorado-class, armed with 8 16-inch guns.
A warship at the background left has outlook similar to Japanese Imperial Navy battleships with typical very high superstructure (in US Navy this detail of Japanese battleships was nicknamed "Pagoda"). Possibly this is a photo of the Battle of Surigao Strait of 25 October 1944 when "Yamashiro" was sank by six US battleships of 14-inch and 16-inch types, described above.
