Bluejackets at play in the last part of the 19th Century
Here is a great series of postal cards from the Detroit Publishing Co in the 1870s-1890s showing various scenes around the fleet. Several of these were taken on the grand old ship of the line USS Vermont which spent her entire life as a receiving ship. Others are on steel ships such as the protected cruiser USS Atlanta, and armored cruisers USS New York (ACR-2) and USS Brooklyn (ACR-3).
Most of these are in the LOC under in their original B&W higher resolution condition (e.g. New York) should you be interested.
