An old photograph of the battleship Vengeance

The battleship Vengeance was one of the faster battleships that sacrificed some armour for higher speed (battlecruiser-like). This is a photograph dating from prior to 1904 showing the Vengeance in Victorian livery. Other ships in the class included the Ocean, Canopus, Glory, and others.

Wasn't there a battleship called Renown in the Meditteranan Squadron earlier, that was also very fast? Admiral Fisher's flagship, I recall, which gave him the idea for the battle cruiser.
