Re: Color footage of the US fleet 1936
Nevada received her birdbath very early on. She got hers in 1934. Seven years before her sister and the two Pennsylvania class received theirs.
I wonder about the date on this film. When did Oklahoma and Nevada get their "birdbath" on the mainmast? Pennsylvania does not have hers. I would guess this is shot in San Francisco Bay as I think I've seen that double ended ferry before.
Also, does anybody know who the young girl is at beginning?
Identifiable ship include Pennsylvania, Nevada, Idaho. Not sure which cruisers are shown yet. Omaha class and maybe SLC?
