Ships at Newport
Home Up

Shipmate Al Lundgren contributed the photograph below probably taken in the 1950s.  There appear to be 4 Destroyer Tenders, about 23 Destroyers/Destroyer Escorts, 3 Oiler/Supply ships and one small craft (perhaps a mine sweeper or salvage and rescue ship) all moored at Piers I and II at Newport, RI.  And with all those ships in port, look at the available parking!!! (Must have been a Sunday.)
