Gunners Gang On the Maine

(Photograph by E. H. Hart)

"The full dress appearance of a ship's crew at quarters is not the invariable condition of the men during all the duties aboard ship. In the above photograph the gunner's gang is shown in costumes befitting the work of cleaning and oiling the guns and keeping the metal work in the polished condition the visitor sees it when he goes on board a well-ordered man-of-war." - Johnston
