FRANCESCO MOROSINI (Italian Battleship, 1885-1909)
Title: FRANCESCO MOROSINI (Italian Battleship, 1885-1909)
Caption: Photographed very early in her career, probably off La Spezia. Note that the light shields placed over the two midships twin heavy gun barbettes have not yet been fitted, nor are any boats or other detail fittings carried topside. It is known that the ship was largely complete by April 1889 but was not placed in commission until January 1891; this photo may date from this time or earlier sea trials.
