The Roster of the U.S.S. BALTIMORE at Manila Bay  

The Crew of the Cruiser U.S.S. Baltimore

A view of the crew of the BALTIMORE on the spar deck. The men wear their working white uniforms,
and most wear the knit wool watch cap. In the foreground, some crew try to restrain two mascots. The one on
the left appears to be a goat, and the one on the right possibly a dog.
