The British war cruiser Naiad anchoring in a port, seen from the port side. Smaller craft surround it, and in the background other anchored vessels and the coastline can be seen. The Naiad was an Apollo-class second-class, 3,400-ton cruiser, built in 1890 and sold around 1920 after a discreet career. It should not be confused with another Naiad, an AA cruiser sunk by the German submarine U565 near Sollum on March 11th, 1942. (Postcard from the Marine Royale Anglaise series).
