This striking looking ship is the Steamship Saratoga, which was painted by Antonio Jacobsen (1850-1921). 
—————-
The ship was a turn of the century hybrid ship. Built in 1907 in Philadelphia, the ship had both sails and masts and a steam screw propulsion system. The ship was 6391 gross tons with net tonnage of 3963. It was 413 feet long, 50.2 feet wide, and 17.2 feet deep. The engines had an estimated 5,000 horsepower. 
—————-
The Saratoga was a passenger ship with a crew of 138. During the late 19thcentury the Saratoga made a regular voyage back and forth from New York City to Havana, Cuba. It was one of the many immigrant ships bringing people to Ellis Island.
