Next to buoys laid out on the dock, several of the 12th District U.S. Lighthouse Service vessels are moored at the Yerba Buena Depot in preparation to meet the Great White Fleet and take part in the festivities. Shown are the lighthouse tender Madroño (far right) and the two lightships, Relief LV-83 (later designated Swiftsure) and San Francisco LV-70. The 1859 USS Pensacola on the upper left was used during that era as a stationary receiving ship at the U.S. Naval Training Station also located on Yerba Buena Island.
