A rare photograph of the USS Brooklyn in 1905

I have this rare photograph of the belted cruiser USS Brooklyn taken in 1905. The Brooklyn was completed in 1896 and originally carried 8-8in and 10-5in guns, as well as 12 smaller guns. These are probably nominal figures. The displacement was 9,215 tons and the dimensions were 400ft-6in x 64ft-8in x 24ft. The Brooklyn had four vertical triple expansion engines and seven Scotch boilers. The IHP was 18,425. While very light on trials, the Brooklyn reached 21.91 knots.
