Title
"Vizcaya" under full headway
Other Title
Spanish battleship "Viscaya"
Summary
"A splendid picture of the pride of the Spanish navy, taken on the occasion of her visit to New York Harbor, when her captain hinted at his ability to blow holes through New York's skyscrapers. In this picture the vessel makes a very beautiful appearance steaming out to sea under full headway. But what a contrast to a later Biograph picture when the vessel was a smoking hulk wrecked on the shore of Cuba, battered to pieces by the guns of the Oregon"--Biograph picture catalogue.
