    That overflowing trash barrel in the back seems to indicate they either didn't empty them very often or everyone walked around wadding up paper and throwing it away.

    I'm thinking this is from the USNA. We weren't using wooden sailing vessels in the 1930s, however midshipmen still had to learn how to sail.
