Description
Photograph of port profile of the U.S.S. Vermont with several small boats alongside, 1908. To the right, a large crowd is gathered along the deck of the ship near a stairwell along its hull. Several people are seen on the large stairwell, and many more passengers are visible within the small boat below. Another small boat is seen to the far right, and a covered boat is visible to the far left. On the left side of the deck, a few people are seen scattered along the deck. At the center of the ship, three tall smokestacks with two holes on each side are seen. On both sides of these smokestacks, large metallic crane arms are visible. To the left and right, large masts frame the smoke stacks. Meshes of wire extend to several parts of the ship from each mast, and two flags adorn the top of the leftmost mast. Similarly, a large American flag is seen near the stern of the ship on the far right.
