Crew Spaces in USS Dale (DD-4)
Here we see the crew spaces on the Bainbridge class destroyer USS Dale (DD-4). Down the sides are wooden chest lockeres and berths, and there would appear to be the frameworks for bunks above the chests. In the centre of the roof is the support structure for the forward gun. The picture was taken on 1 July 1901 while the Dale was still fitting out.

The standard history of the development of American destroyers, from the earliest torpedo boat destroyers to the post-war fleet, and covering the massive classes of destroyers built for both World Wars. Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
