In regard to the USS Constellation - a few photos when she was still in service.
My grandfather did his recruit training on board USS Constellation at Naval Station Newport, RI in 1906.
Left to right:
  • The USS Constellation, Naval Training Station, Newport ca. 1906.
  • Recruit Training on board the USS Constellation, 1907 at Newport, RI
  • The USS Constellation at Newport, ca 1909. Building in the center is the Naval War College, ship to the right is the USS Reina Mercedes captured as a prize of war on 7 July 1898, at Santiago de Cuba, during the Spanish-American War.
The second two images are in my collection of cool "stuff" to collect.
