Title:Photographs of Hawaii and the ships Nipsic, Vandalia, and Trenton in Samoa
Three scenic views of Hawaii: an outrigger with Diamond Head in background, Diamond Head from Punchbowl, and a view numbered
237 and captioned "Pali from spring". This view includes what appears to be the lense board of a stereo camera in the foreground.
The other views relate to three American naval ships caught by a storm at Apia, Samoa on March 15-16, 1889. Two views picture
the beached gunboat Nipsic, the sunken screw sloop Vandalia, and the screw steamer Trenton; one shows the surviving Nipsic
some time after the disaster.
