This photo was taken from a plane in the US Navy Utility Squadron VJ-1 from an altitude of 7,000 ft. The aircraft carrier USS Intrepid (CV-11) is in the center with the Crane Ship No. 1 (ex-USS Kearsarge (BB-5)) on her port side. The battleship USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) is at the pier in the upper part of the picture. The drydock near the center of the picture holds a transport ship. The light aircraft carrier USS Cabot (CVL-28) is visible in the drydock in the lower part of the picture. There are two submarines visible in the bottom right and one of them is USS Drum (SS-228).
