Photograph of "Old Ironsides" replica firing shots on the ocean, ca.1926. At center, the large ship named "Old Ironsides" is seen on the ocean water extending to the left. A white stripe lines the darkly-colored vessel, and only three cannons can be seen protruding from the side of the ship. White smoke surrounds the ship on both sides near the cannon hatches. At center, three masts stand erect perpendicular to the ship. The mast in the middle is slightly taller than the adjacent two, and four perpendicular wooden bars lie at spaced intervals on each mast. A small platform can also be seen on each mast. Several of the sails have been unfurled and remain visible. Several ropes can be seen extending from each mast to the ship and the large wooden pole at the bow of the ship. This wooden pole extends from the ship's bow at a slight angle. A few rope nets are visible on the pole's body. At the stern of the ship, an American flag can be seen hanging near the rightmost mast. Other details of the stern are obscured by the smoke. In the extreme background to the left, a faint shoreline can be seen.; Description on the back of the photograph reads: "The frigate Constitution, most gallant fighting vessel that ever furled a sail, discharging a broadside in a thrilling scene in James Cruze's "Old Ironsides", famous story of the early American sea fleet which Laurence Stallings wrote for Paramount. This vessel, an exact duplicate of the original frigate, was erected in Long Beach, California, especially for the production. The masts on the ship tower more than two hundred feet from the waterline to the skysail".
