Photo #: NH 90513
Kongo (Japanese battlecruiser, 1913)
Photograph printed on a postal card. It was taken between 1925 and 1928.
The Japanese language caption in upper left center gives information on the ship's construction, displacement, dimensions and armament.
Text in upper right identifies Kongo and Haruna as having this appearance. However, only Kongo had the searchlight platform between the first and second smokestacks, as seen here.
See Photo # NH 89176 for an identical view, with very similar Japanese language caption.
