Details

Taken upstream from its companion photo (see Related Photos below), this view shows two unidentified Navy ships resting in the waters of the Willamette in Portland.

The ship in the foreground is a Yorktown class gunboat, thus either the Yorktown, Concord or Bennington. My "old ship advisor" leans toward the Concord. In the background is Portland's original double-decker Steel Bridge, a swing-span design built in 1888. It was replaced by the current, but still historic, Steel Bridge in 1912.
