U.S. Atlantic Fleet Battleships steaming in column
USS Connecticut (Battleship # 18), at right, leads Atlantic Fleet battleships, circa 1907-1908. She is followed by USS Kansas (Battleship # 21), in center, and USS Vermont (Battleship # 20), next astern of Kansas.
Panoramic photograph by C.E. Waterman, 215 55th Street, Chicago, Illinois.
Note: Individual copies of this image bear conflicting identifications. One (written in pencil on its reverse side) states that the photograph shows the Fleet entering San Francisco Bay, California, on 6 May 1908. Another is captioned (printed in ink on the mounting mat): "The Atlantic Fleet standing into Hampton Roads at the conclusion of preliminary maneuvers, August 30th, 1907". Given the Waterman Family's long association with the Hampton Roads, Virginia, area, the latter identification may be more credible.
