USS Chesapeake (ID # 3395)
At the Morse Dry Dock and Repair Company (probably in the New York City area), 3 April 1919.
Also present are several tugs, among them the Dewitt C. Ivins (in the left center foreground) and the Solicitor (partially visible in the right foreground).
Note the heavy boom fitted to Chesapeake's foremast to support her intended employment as a salvage ship.
