Photograph of portside view of "Old Ironsides" replica at a harbor, San Pedro, ca.1926. At center, the large replica of "Old Ironsides" sits docked in a harbor. Three large masts stand perpendicular to the body of the ship. Four smaller, wooden bars lie equally spaced across each mast. Folded sails are visible on these wooden bars of the mast. Large rope ladders connect the deck to the small platforms found on each mast, and several ropes can be seen connecting to various parts of the vessel. A large tilted mast extends from the bow of the ship and a slight angle. Near the bow of the ship, a small American flag can be seen. In the foreground, crowds of people can be seen walking along the port. In the background, buildings and utility poles are visible. In the distance to the left, a small water tower is visible. The replica of the ship was made for use in a motion picture by Paramount Studios.
