Brooklyn Navy Yard - Photo #1 - Shipyard and buildings

U.S. Navy photo NH 93234 from the U.S. Navy Naval History and Heritage Command.
Aerial photograph of the New York Navy Yard, Brooklyn, New York (USA), taken 9 March 1944. USS Missouri (BB-63) is fitting out in the center. The aircraft carrier at the bottom is (most probably) USS Bennington (CV-20), launched on 28 February 1944. The large ship under construction in the upper right is USS Bon Homme Richard (CV-31), which was launched on 29 April 1944. An old battleship is docked to the left of the slips, maybe USS Arkansas (BB-33).[2]  All the ships mentioned above except the Arkansas were built at Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Missouri is where World War II ended, when Japan signed the instrument of surrender on its deck September 2, 1945; see a huge USS Missouri gallery at
