Jack Barrett at wheel #982 (9)
This is probably from Revenue Cutter School training ship ITASCA l909-1911. but it is placed in Mollie Barrett's photo album near l918 victory garden in South Boston - study of uniform might confirm if this is as Revenue Cutter School cadet or l9l7-l9l8 as Naval Reserve Lieutenant aboard SYLVIA or ANNISTON (MONTGOMERY).I am inclined to think Jack Barrett is in cadet uniform.
