Floating Drydock YFD-2
Arrives at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on 23 August 1940, after being towed from New Orleans, Louisiana. It is still marked "U.S. Naval Station New Orleans, La".
USS Osceola (YT-129) is in the right foreground, assisting. One of the other tugs is probably USS Sunnadin (AT-28).
An unidentified destroyer seaplane tender (AVD) is tied up at the Ford Island fuel dock, in the left center. Visible in the distance, moored on the other side of Ford Island, are (from left to right): USS Yorktown (CV-5), two destroyers, USS Wright (AV-1) and two light cruisers.
