It was a plan for the German empire to shell Manhattan and capture Boston that was abandoned in 1907. Here is a wikipedia page.

The front of this ship reminds me of the Nautilius ship from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Nice work!

that shape was very common for cruisers, battleships and pre-dreadnoughts from
late 19th century and early 20th century. The idea was to create strong edge-like ram which can be used for ramming weaker enemy vessels. It was very popular in military shipbuilding but it wasnt very succesful in combat:-)

Love the darker colors, and the way the Sacramento Bay is sort of "steaming toward victory," it seems...
