Cherokee (American Steam Yacht, 1903)
In a Northeastern harbor, prior to her U.S. Navy service. Though painted grey, wearing a U.S. Ensign and Jack and with men on deck in Navy-type uniforms, she is unarmed and unmarked. The photograph may have been taken during Naval Coast Defense Reserve exercises in 1916-1917.
This yacht was loaned to the Navy on 26 April 1917 and placed in commission as USS Cherokee (SP-1104) on 1 May 1917. She was decommissioned on 25 November 1918 and returned to her owner on 17 February 1919.
