USS Missouri (BB-11) in 1903-1910

This page presents overall views of USS Missouri from her commissioning in December 1903 into 1910.
During 1903 to early 1909, Missouri wore the white and buff paint of the pre-1909 battle fleet. Up her return from the World cruise of the "Great White Fleet", in February 1909, she was repainted grey and fitted with a new "basket" (or "cage") foremast. The ship retained this configuration for about a year.

For additional picture coverage on this ship, her crew and activities, see the pages linked from:
