Lead ship of the so-called Long-Hull Essex carriers. The "Long-Hull" was an extra 16 feet added to the bow for forward anti-aircraft guns, which can be seen well here. It was ironic, then, that three months after this photo was taken, right after Ticonderoga’s shake-down cruise, her flight deck was lengthened by 11 feet forward (and 7 feet aft) to all but cover the new gun mounts.
