USS Wachusett (1862-1887)
Drying sails at the Boston Navy Yard, with two small tugs docked beyond her bow.
The original print bears the date 22 December 1874, seven days before she decommissioned at Boston.
Plans in the National Archives indicate that Wachusett was altered to this configuration during her 1874-79 refit at Boston, and retained it until she was finally decommissioned in 1885.
