Unidentified Argentinian Garibaldi-class armoured cruiser (probably General Garibaldi, see comments below).

Class details:


  1. She's not the Cristóbal Colón; she's one of the ships of Argentina.
    The Colón never mounted her main guns as showed in photo

  2. Thanks for the info. I'll look into this and amend the caption accordingly. :)

  3. You're wellcome.
    I think the ship is ARA "General Garibaldi" one of three ships armed with two Armstrong 254/45 mm (10"/45); the "Garibaldi" mounted 10 152/45 mm (6"/45) too and the other 2 ships armed with 10" guns, "Generay Pueyrredon" and "General Belgrano", were armed with 14 152/45 mm (6"/45); the fourth, "General San Martín" was armed with 4 203/45 mm (8"/45)

  4. Once again, thanks for the info. :)
