USS Saturn (1898-1922, later AG-4)
Unloading material in a Far East port, circa 1918-1919.
Between late 1918 and mid-1919 Saturn made a voyage to Vladivostok, Russia, carrying coal, supplies, and a team that built a naval radio station there. This photo may have been taken during one of her brief stops in Japan in December 1918 or June 1919. The gun on the right is one of the two 3"/50 weapons fitted forward of the bridge during World War I; she also received a 6"/50 gun aft.
