I would have said this schooner is being hove down for repair, rather than propped up to right a capsize. seems to be heavy block and tackle leading downwards from that "support".

Shipwreck


A stereoview of a partly capsized vessel, that appears to be a three-masted schooner in a narrow harbour. The salvage team has various supports rigged in an attempt to get her back upright. The one on the left is supported by a barge. The wharf is in the foreground with a figure, perhaps a uniformed policeman, facing the photographer.
