The clarity of this picture, especially with it being 1897, is pretty amazing.
Initially, I thought it was taken below deck but you can see the 2 hulls of the lifeboats/launches that one of the sailors is sitting between.
That dude on the left needs to bend his knees, especially if attacking the body. Leaned right into a shovel uppercut (rock’em sock’em robot style of uppercut)
I was quite surprised to find out there were battleships already in the 19th century.
Welcome to the Salty Spittoon, how tough ar ya?
The kid in the audience behind the boxer on the right has seen some shit
This looks like a very quiet match look at all the sailors watching, with little to no expression
Do we know any more about this picture? Who are the boxers? Is it Atlantic fleet vs. Pacific fleet?
Yo this is an excellent picture! Wish the Navy was still like this.
The past always looks like it didn’t smell very nice
