Photo #: NH 86510
Japanese Kongo class battlecruiser
Underway, probably between 1917 and 1920.
The close spacing of the first and second funnels indicates that this ship is Haruna, Hiei or Kirishima, but certainly not Kongo.
Note Japanese Imperial Chrysanthemum used as a decoration in the top center of the print.
