USS Robinson (DD-88) on trials, San Francisco, October 1918
Here we see the Wickes class destroyer USS Robinson (DD-88) during her trials, conducted off San Francisco in October 1918. Note that she is already in her dazzle camouflage. This would appear to be a half power trial, with two funnels in use. The Robinson left San Francisco for the East Coast on 24 October, so this picture must have been taken before that date.
