I have no clue as to what ships or anything the following pictures are of, but they are all from 1900-1920s.

If the WPO forum was alive this would've been more appropriate there.

To end the display a River Monitor.




A few of these pictures have to be substantially older than 1900.

Most of those photos appear to be of Teddy's Great White Fleet.

I didn't recognize it, I showed it to a friend and he instantly recognized the class. He said as a kid he wanted to buy a model kit of her but it was just too expensive. He was born in '48.

Appreciate the pictures a bunch. Ship construction was in such a state of flux between the Civil War and the advent of Dreadnought. Fascinating to see some of it pictured above.

A Dynamite gun cruiser ? Wow that must be one of these rare ships which are in the same coolness league as the Ise.

I think it is the Vesuvius (1888). Those are pneumatic dynamite guns.

Here's a shot of a boxing match, circa 1897, on the USS Oregon.

Tocaff:

Judging by the location of the cage-masts, funnels, and elevated turret, I believe the first picture you showed is a midships view looking forward, of a Florida-class BB, either Florida (BB-30) or Utah (BB-31). The class had 6 twin gun turrets of that design, and I think the elevated foreground turret is what the USN would call Turret #3, or what the British would call the P-Turret.

Here's a stern view of the Utah:
