U.S.S. Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy and launched into service in 1797. One of the first duties of this ship was to provide protection for American merchants during the Quasi War with France (1798-1800) and to defeat the Barbary pirates during the First Barbary War (1801-1805). During the War of 1812 against Great Britain, the Constitution earned its nickname, "Old Ironsides." The Constitution was retired from service in 1881 and was later designated as a museum ship. In 1931, the ship started a three year tour, stopping at 90 different ports in the United States.
This collection contains a photograph of the U.S.S. Constitution taken in December 1931 while it was docked in Savannah, Georgia from the head of Bull Street.
