Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
That's a strange looking battle ship. That first photo looks like she doing an engine test.
Funny-looking. So different from the post-Dreadnought designs of the Great War and later.
It's called a "floating battery" and was only 173' long.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9vastation-class_ironclad_floating_battery
That was the first Devastation, Crimean War vintage. This one was built much later and was about twice that size.
Incredible amount of topside clutter.
Might not be great duty.
The French Marine National had some rather unique looking battleships.
