League Island Navy Yard, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
U.S. Navy ships laid up at League Island soon after the end of the Civil War.
The three ships nearest to the camera appear to be "Double Ender" gunboats. Next astern, with two smokestacks, is a former blockade runner. Beyond her, also with two funnels, is USS Vanderbilt. Several monitors are in the far left distance, tied up astern of Vanderbilt.
The original print is mounted on a stereograph card.
