Information as see on page 4


Inside of Front Cover

In order to make the photos larger, most of the pages have been "trimmed"
A few of the "dual pages" were modified slightly so these photos could be seen as a whole.
If YOU served onboard CA-74 at this time and would like an "original scan" (much larger than seen here) of a page of this cruisebook, such as a picture of yourself or shipmate. I will make arrangements to get it to the requester.
I offer this only on an "as I can do it "basis.
