‘holland’ Amplifications

The two-page picture of the Holland undoubtedly was taken at Annapolis, as the Holland spent half of her service life there for the training of cadets, officers, and enlisted men. The Holland was struck from the Navy Register of Ships on November 21, 1910, and sold for scrap in June 1913.

The recovery of the British Holland is quite remarkable. With all the fine pictures of the hulk, it seems a shame not to have one taken in her prime. So I’m enclosing a picture of No. I (below) at her launching at Barrowin-Furness on November 2, 1901.

We hope you enjoy our work.
