USS Standish (1865-1921)
Possibly in the Severn River, off the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, with a steam launch alongside. Standish was a station tug at the Naval Academy from about 1880 through the First World War.
Original caption identifies ship in left background as the U.S. Light House Tender Maple and date as 1899. Either this ship identification or the date is incorrect.
