I have a nice picture of the USS Concord, rated as a gunboat

The USS Concord took part in the Battle of Manilla Bay in 1898. This is a photograph dating from 1891. The Concord was actually a small cruiser, with a displacement of 1710 tons and with 6-4in guns.

Nice photo indeed! In fact
someone on my group will
doubtless use it for some
much needed background.As
we are doing a gun boat
battle at the end of the
month...excellent find!
