At Villefranche-sur-Mer, France in 1889.
The ships include the old Civil War-era screw sloop-of-war USS Lancaster (bottom right with extensive deck canvas). To the left in a cluster are the early French ironclad battleship Amiral Duperré (11,000t), ironclad Colbert (8,400t), and the ironclad Amiral Baudin (12,150t). The sleek vessel in the center is listed as a Russian cruiser labeled as “Crident” (which does not match any Russian cruiser ever made) while the brand-new French Condor-class torpedo cruiser Faucon (1,311t) to the top right.
