HMS Empress of India of the Channel Squadron, In Dock at Chatham

The first-class battleship Empress of India of the Channel Squadron which we here see as she lay in dock at Chatham Yard last December, belongs to the Royal Sovereign type of battleships, and was built under the Naval Defence Act of 1889.
