Additional Details

A large-format print by the important Maryland photographer Aubrey Bodine (1906-1970), whose work appeared in the Baltimore Sunday Sun Magazine for more than forty years. The Missouri served at Iwo Jima and Okinawa during World War Two, in the Korean War, and again during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. It is presently a museum ship at Pearl Harbor. Bodine's official website provides the date of this image, and explains that every June a naval task force sailed up the Chesapeake to the United States Naval Academy, where the midshipmen boarded for a summer cruise.
