Italian Cruiser Etna -- August 26, 2011

Italian protected cruiser Etna was launched in 1885. She served all over the world and was used as a stationary hulk during World War One. She was sold for scrap in 1921. Here she is visiting Mare Island to get her bottom scraped after time in Asia and the Pacific.

From the 09-November-1898 San Francisco Call. William A Coulter did many maritime drawings for the newspaper. Click on the image to see a larger version.
