This photo, taken in 1943, shows the two members of the Pensacola class (CA-25 and CA-24) on the left. Note that A turret on both ships is a twin mount, whereas the superimposed B turret is a triple mount. New Orleans (CA-32), on the right, has the more conventional arrangement, all triple mounts, but one less gun, nine instead of ten. In the background, behind Salt Lake, you can just see the battleship Oklahoma being salvaged. She is already righted and is being refloated to clear the anchorage; however the Navy judged her not worth repairing.
