Title: USS Holland
Description: (Submarine Torpedo Boat # 1) At the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, circa 1901-1902, with several midshipmen on board. Among the midshipmen are, as identified from names on their uniforms: Naval Cadet Henry G.S. Wallace (entering conning tower); Naval Cadet John W. Woodruff (behind Wallace); Naval Cadet John. H. Blackburn (by the mast); and Naval Cadet William J. Moses (in front of the flag). The officer standing by the conning tower is probably Holland's Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Harry H. Caldwell. Note Holland's bell mounted on her foremast, commissioning pennant flying from the top of her mainmast, outriggers fixed along her deck edge, and the bow of the converted yacht Gloucester in the right background.
