This may have been linked here before, but Dennifloss, a French Canadian who posted on Ars Technica, put together a very nice collection of warship photos on his blog prior to his passing in June of 2014.

There are some very sharp photos in there.

Nice looking ship but perhaps a bit longer than it needs to be? Does the mid section need to be there?

I swear that the Italians can make a tractor look beautiful.

Length leads to speed and I think the boiler rooms are in between the stacks

I never knew that longer ships were faster. I would have expected that more surface equaled more drag?

It's not outright length, its length to width ratio.  

Wider ships have a larger surface area, so you aren't wrong per se in that regard.

Nice collection!

I have a question... Is Asahi a Mikasa-class ship?

Shikishima-class battleship, it came after the Mikasa which was a one-off.

I just received a vintage reproduction Japanese woodblock print of a Japanese steam warship.  Going by Shogun 2, I think it's Kankō Maru class.

Here's a couple of pics from my Grandfather's archives.  The first of course, needs no introduction.  The second photo, however, is something I have been trying to find out more about.  On the back of the picture is 12-42, and my Grandfather was stationed in New Jersey during the first part of WWII and I think the picture is of the Philadelphia Naval Yards.
