USS President Lincoln (1917-1918)
Photographed by the wireless operator of USS Rijndam (ID # 2505) just after she was torpedoed on 31 May 1918. The radioman was then sending out an "S-O-S" message.
President Lincoln sank about a half-hour later.
The original print has been retouched to emphasize the smoke issuing from her stack.
