USS Oneida (1898-1915)
Eleven of the ship's crew on deck with a puppy, probably circa 1913-1915.
The original postcard-format photographic print was accompanied by a newspaper clipping, dated January 15 (presumably 1914 or 1915), reporting that Oneida's crew were officially commended by Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels for their "heroic work" in rescuing passengers of the disabled steamer Pilot Boy, of the Beaufort-Savannah line, on the previous 13th of December.
Donation of Ted Stone, 1985.
