Many of D.W. Waterman’s military and wartime photographs were made into postcards and sold in the last century. Some of these original postcards can occasionally be found for sale online. However, this item is an original photographic print. It appears to be an gelatin silver print made by the photographer.

A rare antique nautical image with a long column of ships in the open ocean. We count twelve ships with three smokestacks each in the column with some other a small watercraft in the vicinity. The wake of the photographer’s boat is pictured, and is an excellent contrast to the ominous sky above.

Original Print in Very Good condition with some light spotting and old tape on the back edges – Size: 19.5″ x 11 inches. The stamp of D.W. Waterman, 215 E. 55th St., Chicago, IL. is on the lower left-hand-side of photo.

      Hi, I was asking because I think I have one, too. Identical signature, copyright 1909, Chicago, just as in yours. Same ship, only one ship, full close view in mine. Was just trying to identify. My grandfather was in the Navy, USS Hancock, and I inherited an old picture of a naval ship with three smokestacks.

    There is little material on the internet on Waterman. I have a (assume) print with c in a circle for copyright & just D W Waterman. It is a little over 19″ long by about 9″ high & has a full view of 2 ships & part of a third all using a smoke screen.
