This post card features United States Navy Protected Cruiser "Olympia" and was in service from 1895 to 1922. She is the sole floating survivor of the US Navy's Spanish-American War fleet, now a museum ship docked at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia and is re-painted. somewhere I have a photo of me on this ship.

    Is this really the oldest floating warship today or meaning U.S. ship. Don't know jack-"s" about it but is the Constitution a reproduction & the HMS Victory(II)? Just interested.

    I don't know jack either, wrote it wrong, should have said, "She is the sole floating survivor of the US Navy's Spanish-American War fleet"

    Very cool and very glad this ship was preserved. Excellent also that the postcard was preserved.
