Passing under the Brooklyn Bridge at New York.
The photo was taken after the ship was armed with 3" guns (three of which are visible) circa 1916 and after crowsnests were fitted to the foremast and mizzenmast, probably in 1917-1918. The photographer, N. Moser of New York, was active between 1915 and 1939.
