Caption: Santa Maria ship. 19th-century replica of the Spanish carrack Santa Maria. This was the flagship used by Italian explorer Christopher Columbus on his 1492 voyage to discover the Americas. Replicas of all three ships in Columbus's expedition were made in Spain for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, with the Santa Maria replica being sailed across the Atlantic. The original replicas had sunk or been destroyed by the 1920s. This photograph, by US photographer Edward H. Hart, is from the Detroit Publishing Company. It is thought to date from around 1893, possibly from the Columbian Naval Review at Hampton Roads.
