Photo #: NH 105383
USS Whipple (Torpedo Boat Destroyer # 15)
At anchor, prior to World War I.
The original image is printed on a postcard mailed at San Francisco, California, on 9 January 1920. Its front bears a hand-written inscription identifying this ship as USS "Benington" (which is quite incorrect) and giving the location as Monterey Bay, California, and date as July 1914. See Photo # NH 105383-A-KN for a view of the reverse side of this postcard, which contains a message concerning railway labor conditions in the San Francisco area.
