Playing Checkers On Board A U.S. Man O'War (circa 1905) U.S Naval History



Playing Checkers on board a U.S. Man O'War.

The ship is thought to be the USS Kentucky (BB-6) in view of the turret decoration seen in upper right of the picture. The photograph was taken by Enrique Muller around circa 1905.

As this was originally a black & white photo it has been colour-tinted. The finished photograph was published on a postcard by the American News Company, New York.

The photo is courtesy of Commander Donald J. Robinson, USN(Retired), 1983. It is deposited with the U.S. Naval Historical Center (Public Domain).
