From a commerical site so the ones I post have big yellow banners on them, but still interesting. USS Newark ca 1891-1901 Petty Officers Mess - Note the upscale white china plates, bowls, cruet holding the vinegar and oil. Note the wooden kegs hanging from the ceiling! Sailor on front right sitting on armament locker.
USS Newark ca 1891-1901 Crews Galley where food was prepared for the Crew. Note the black and philippino officers stewards and mess cooks in front and in the rear you can see enlisted crew members being served thru a serving window
USS Newark ca 1891-1901 Crews Berth Area also served as the Mess - Note wooden spitoon on floor next to sailor sewing. He is also sitting on his "ditty box" which contained a sailors personal items aboard ship. The sewing machine is sitting on one of two small arm armament lockers.
