USS Macdonough (DD-351), Mare Island, 1942
Here we see the Farragut class destroyer USS Macdonough (DD-351) at Mare Island on 29 May 1942. During this period the Macdonough was helping escort convoys from the west coast to Hawaii, so this picture was probably taken at the eastern end of one of those trips. From this angle we get a good view of her bridge structure, which was far more complex than the simple structures on the previous generation of destroyers. We also get a good view of the shields on her forward guns.
