STRANGE 1908 ROSE FESTIVAL - PORTLAND HARBOR - MOSQUITO SQUADRON - DESTROYERS PREBLE, PERRY & FARRAGUT WITH TORPEDO BOATS FOX & DAVIS

This photo was probably taken during the 1908 Rose Festival when the “Mosquito Squadron” visited Portland. The destroyers Preble, Perry and Farragut, and the torpedo boats Fox and Davis were among the ships in attendance. This photo shows two destroyers (larger ships in the background) and two torpedo boats. Coincidentally, the Fox and Davis, along with a third torpedo boat Goldsborough, were built in 1898-99 at Wolff &
Zwicker Iron Works at the foot of Hawthorne on Portland’s east side.
