USS Winslow (DD-53) on trials, 1915
Here we see the O'Brien class destroyer USS Winslow (DD-53) during her builder's trials early in 1915. She reached 29.01kts during her trials, although the date on this picture (26-7-20) is far too late. This picture comes from 1915, as she lacked her guns, installed after the builder's trials.
