Just a note from Phib: that pic looks like it was taken VERY close to where I once lived.
Panorama of Pearl ~1947. Never really noticed before I took this out to scan, but the two large ships are the New York and Nevada which had been brought back nuke damaged from Bikini in '46 for study. They were sunk as targets in '48. Kinda scary that survivable nuclear warfare is once again being seriously contemplated...
