Old Ironsides in Portsmouth Harbor (NH/Maine)


A unique event took place aboard "Old Ironsides" in 1891 when a group of Portsmouth area veterans from the Storer Post held a party aboard ship with band and dancing. Figures to the left appear to be veterans with band members at the center and women to the right.
