Image 141 - U.S. Torpedo Boat Rowan Built in Seattle

The Rowan was built in 1899 but decommissioned shortly thereafter. It resumed commissioned service in 1908, so this picture was probably taken then. Note the workers down below. The large tube on the deck at the far right appears to be a torpedo launcher; there is another at the far left.
