Pearl Harbor Attack, 7 December 1941
USS Shaw (DD-373) wrecked in floating drydock YFD-2 on 7 December 1941, with fires nearly out but structure still smoking. Her bow had been blown off by the explosion of her forward magazines, after she was set afire by Japanese dive bombing attacks.
In the right distance are the damaged and listing USS California (BB-44) and a dredge.
