(photostatic copy) Photo 14
This is a photo static copy of a picture of CA-74 while it was in Boston.
Taken on June 7 (year not stated)
However, it states that the Commissioning Ceremony
will be tomorrow.
So it must be June 7, 1945.

Please note that Paul Greene has a picture similar to Photo #12 but is an arial view
