Description
Photograph of the deck of an unidentified sailing ship tied up at the long wharf of Port Los Angeles, ca.1905. A sailor holding onto a large rope looks up at the camera. The rigging and masts of the ship fill the sky overhead. Visible on deck are winches, barrels, a lifeboat, and various storage compartments. On the dock along the left side of the ship is a derrick for moving freight. Part of the ocean and the coast in the distance are visible above the gunwales of the ship.
