Not exactly a warship, but a mock up one christened the USS RECRUIT. Sailors from the Brooklyn Navy Yard in my hometown of New York, New York on a Navy recruiting drive in Union Square Park in 1917 have a little fun (note a Navy Goat brought along for show)

A WWI group I think, it's a small image as we see, the only one I could find (sometimes there are larger images of the same photo on different sites), so can't seem to make out vessels name.

Cutting a Rug on an unknown Warship in the 20s (Sure wish photos I found had better descriptions of when and on what ship these were on)

These admittedly are from a couple of 1936 movies, still good fun, and were good movies for the Navy and the public during the depression.

James Stewart as a CPO and his shipmate Buddy Ebsen with another shipmate cut a rug in Born to Dance. Stewart and Ebsen's characters are Submarine Crewmen.

Everyone knows Sailors that can dance well have no problem finding pretty ladies while ashore.
