USS Reid (DD-369) being launched
Here we see the Mahan class destroyer USS Reid (DD-369) being launched at Kearny on 11 January 1936. At this point her weapons hadn't yet been installed. We also get a direct view through the bridge windows, which shows that the back of the lower bridge was actually largely open.
