U.S. Navy Mine Layers
Steaming in two parallel columns of four, during the laying of the North Sea mine barrage in the summer and fall of 1918.
Analysis of the ships' configurations and camouflage schemes indicates that the left column contains (from front to rear) USS Saranac (ID # 1702), USS Roanoke (ID # 1695), USS Housatonic (ID # 1697), and either USS Shawmut (ID # 1255) or USS Aroostook (ID # 1256); while the right column contains (from front to rear) USS Canandaigua (ID # 1694), USS Canonicus (ID # 1696), USS Quinnebaug (ID # 1687) and (perhaps) USS Baltimore.
