Photo #: NH 73617
USS Dictator (1864-1883)
View on deck, looking aft on the starboard side, while the ship was off an east coast Navy yard, circa the 1870s.
Note the elevated wooden wheelhouse atop the turret.
The original photograph is the right side of a stereograph pair published by the Littleton View Company, Littleton, New Hampshire, under the title "Man of War".
This view was taken at the same time as Photo # NH 93871, from the opposite end of the ship. Some of the same people are visible in both photographs.
