Nice images, Tom. How'd you come by them?

They are, indeed, collectible. What are the dimensions on the panoramic Hopkins crew? Same for the Maine, and what is the photographer, or publisher information on them? Are the action views aboard the Hopkins?

I'm always pleased to see photos of the White Fleet.

Hi surf.

Maine 18x10. Ow waterman. Hampton va.

Hopkins. 20x11.photo by. Fraulay-Collins mt holly nj

Not sure about the action shots. I got these from my grandfathers estate, he was executor of an estate and these ended up in his old garage. The gentleman was a navy captain in the 40s and his commendation is framed too. I'm assuming these earlier photos are from his fathers ships.
Thanks.
Tom

Much more valuable than you might imagine Tom. If there is a
collection, it might be worth taking to a good auction house
and let them do some marketing on it before it comes to
auction.

Some other items that came from same collection.
1911 graduation certificate from Germantown acadamy.

Reserve officers school @ anapolis certificate 1918,

1949 captain appointment.

I believe these are all in original frames, which some of the pictures frame backs have torn or have some wear. Overall beautiful though.
