With Weston's signature, date and "S.F.," in pencil, on mount recto.
According to Weston scholar Amy Conger, seven images of ships that were taken in 1925 have been located.
Weston described the ships as "The majestic old boats at anchor in an estuary across from San Francisco." Five of the photographs depict the same boat, 'The Daylight' which was distinguishable by the figurehead on the prow. It is believed that all the photographs were made on the same day, when son Neil accompanied the photographer.
This photograph was included in a lot sold at the Swann Galleries auction "Important 19th & 20th Century Photographs" (New York, Mon Oct 15, 2007).
