Brooklyn Navy Yard, April 1945. Left of center: the aircraft carrier USS Coral Sea under construction. President Roosevelt died April 12, 1945, and in his honor the ship was renamed USS Franklin D. Roosevelt ("Rosie", CV-42). See the famous Hammerhead Crane towards the upper right (it was dismantled in 1965).
