Revenue Cutters -- February 26, 2012

This week Admiral Robert Papp, commandant of the Coast Guard, unveiled three new cutters in Alameda. This image, from the 14-April-1895 San Francisco Call, shows two famous Revenue Cutters, the the Rush and the Bear, in San Francisco Bay. The Bear was preparing to sail to patrol the Bering Sea.
