Don Landauer's
1946 USS Columbus CA-74
Cruise/Chart Photo

Don said he served aboard USS Columbus "mostly as a passenger" from June 1946 until he was mustered out in August 1946. During that time aboard, the Columbus steamed from Tokyo (Sasebo) to Long Beach, CA.

Don is looking for any crew members that served aboard during the time he was aboard.
If you served with Don or during the time he was on board send an E-mail to Don Landauer at

Don sent this museum worthy item to be put on the site.
This item measures about 33 1/3 inches long by 10 inches wide. It took 6 separate scans to get it all!!
Thank You Don. This really is quite a photo !!

See Information on Don & Lyn Landauer's Book "Pearl"

Don't forget this is about 33 1/3" long by 10" wide !!!

Note: The areas above and below the end photos were not scanned.
When the six pieces were "stitched" together that area ended up white.
