View on board ships moored off the yard's western waterfront in 1865-66. Ships in the immediate foreground are monitors. The odd cigar-shaped steamer tied up to them appears to be the former Confederate enlarged David built at Charleston, South Carolina, late in the Civil War. The Navy Yard's western shiphouse is visible in the right background, with USS Resaca fitting out at pierside. Photo mounted on a stereograph card.
