USS Shaw (DD-373)
Off the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard, circa 8 February 1942, after installation of a temporary bow. Her forward magazines had exploded during the Japanese attack of 7 December 1941.
Soon after this photograph was taken, Shaw steamed to the Mare Island Navy Yard, California, for permanent repairs. Note that she is essentially intact from her foremast aft, and retains # 3 5"/38 gun for protection during the voyage to the west coast.
Ford Island is in the background, with the capsized hull of USS Oklahoma (BB-37) at the extreme right.
