Large passenger/freight... about 10,000 grt. or 13,000 grt.

The photo might be taken at Camden CT. Shipbuilder: New York Shipbuilding Corp.

Similar design to the 1903 built MINNEKAHDA.

Definitely!

The style showing the mast arrangement is similar as the others but I can't nail this one down. If you have a CT location it must have ben one from New York Shipbuilding Corp.
I'm a little confused. Wasn't their facility in Camden, NJ?

The reason I think it's taken at New London, is because the person taking the photo had a summer home on Fisher's Island, and kept his yacht at New London for traveling to the island. The photos are grouped with others of Fisher's Island, Block Island, and New London. However, he did rarely take the yacht to the Hudson River, and possibly as far south as New Jersey.
