    This photograph is believed to depict a United States Navy ship at Station Pier, Melbourne during a visit of the Pacific Fleet to Australia in 1925.
    SignificanceThis photograph is significant as a souvenir of the 1925 goodwill cruise of the United States Pacific Fleet to Australia, which renewed the Australian-American alliance established by the Great White Fleet visit in 1908. The 1925 visit contributes to a long history of US Naval visits to Australian ports starting with the US Exploring Expedition in 1839-1840, followed by the 1908 visit of the Great White Fleet and later visits in the 1940s in the lead-up to World War II.
