Image caption: The first dry dock in the United States was started in June 1827 at the Charlestown Navy Yard. It was built of Quincy granite and cost $972,000. Prior to its entire completion in March 1834, the U.S. Frigate "Constitution" was docked on June 24, 1833. Enlarged once, Dry Dock No. 1 is still in active duty.
Reverend Wolcott CutlerCutler was rector at St. John’s Church from 1924 to 1959 and most likely assembled this collection during that time.
