The anchor of HMS Rupert is being taken on board with the backdrop of Valetta Harbour, Malta. Rupert was a single turreted battleship which served as a portguard ship at Alexandria. The photograph was taken just after her refit at the harbour c.1900. A temporary derrick had to be put up to swing the anchor up to the Rupert's deck before the ship's derrick could take over and stow the anchor properly.
