Age caught up with her, and after well over a half a century of service was sunk in 1946 off the coast of California.
In this painting the cruiser is portrayed departing New York Harbor in the early 1890’s, the new Statue of Liberty in the background.
Please note that USS Boston is a popular term only;  technically speaking, American Colonial and United States ships of war did not carry the prefix USS until 1907.
