Description Black-and-white photo of the naval sailing vessel Portsmouth at her berth at or near 4th Street and the Hudson River, Hoboken, no date, circa 1895-1900.

9-3/4" x 13-1/2" high borderless gloss print. Photographer not indicated. Reverse blank. Source of original image is not given; print believed to be an enlargement made from original glass plate.

View is southwest.

The Portsmouth (it was actually the former U.S.N.Portsmouth (II)) was based in Hoboken from 1895-1911. Used for New Jersey Naval Reserve or Militia training; First Battalion was based onboard this vessel. See search terms for a history of the ship.

The two cannons at the Civil War Soldiers Monument in Stevens Park are from this ship.

Also see photo 2014.044.0103 for slightly different view of the same at this time. While there is no documentation that this is the ship in Hoboken, the prints' association with other known images of Hoboken leads to the assumption that Hoboken is the location.
