This color postcard features a large naval ship on the water with land behind it in the distance. The ship has four funnels/stacks in the center, one of which has two white strips near the top. A cage/lattice mast is on the forecastle end of the ship while a pole mast is near the stern end of the ship. The title along the bottom of the card reads "U. S. Cruiser Colorado, Puget Sound Navy Yard." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information, as well as, indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement.
