This color postcard features one large ship in the foreground with at least five ships in the distance behind it and one ship in the distance ahead of it. All of the ships are emitting dark smoke from the funnels/stacks. The sky is orange with yellow and green mixed in. The title along the bottom reads "U. S. Battle Ship Fleet, Puget Sound, Washington." 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. The card is inscribed but is not addressed or postmarked.
