Laundry day on USS Tarbell (DD-142), 1919-1922
Here we see laundry day on the Wickes class destroyers USS Tarbell (DD-142) at some point in 1919-22. This also gives us a good view of the ship's name on the stern, and the propeller guard on USS Lea (DD-118) in the background.
U.S. Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History, Norman Friedmann
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.
