Notes
Content: Printed on border: "This illustration shows the wreck as seen from the "Maine's" fighting top, or circular platform around the mast. When the vessel sank the mast remained upright, the fighting top about fifty feet above the water. The three objects beyond the small boat in the center of the picture are pieces of plate blown upward by the explosion, and sundered from frames 17, 18, and 19. They were made objects of the most searching investigation, and much expert testimony was taken concerning them. The condition of this plate was one of the conclusive proofs of an explosion under and outside the "Maine's" hull."
