11" X 14" Mounted Photo of Sloop of War USS Hartford, by Enrique Muller, 1908

Large mounted photograph of the officers, midshipmen and crew of the Sloop of War USS Hartford. It was taken by Enrique Muller in 1908. Enrique Muller and his son, Robert W. Muller (who practiced under the name E. Muller, Jr.") are perhaps the most noted of the small band of early 20th Century photographers who specialized in naval subjects. The father, born in Germany in 1846, arrived in the United States about twenty years later. He appears to have begun photographing ships on a commercial basis during the later 1890s, mainly in the waters around New York City, where both father and son resided. Muller's excellent quality views of the ships of the "Great White Fleet" eara are especially significan. Condition: foxing (light and translucent); otherwise VG. Mount, measuring 14" X 17", has bumped corners.
