This is a panorama photograph of the crew of USS Arkansas BB 33. This is not a print. The photo is framed in a brown wooden frame and is ready for hanging. The frame measures 49 inches x 12.5 inches.
The photo shoot takes place with the crew on board ship and on the dock along side the ship. It is unknown where the ship was docked at the time of this photo.

There is no date on the photo.

Research of visible characteristics of the ship shows this photo may have been taken between late 1930s to early 1940s.

The USS Arkansas (BB-33) was one of the oldest battleships to serve in World War Two. 562 feet long, weighing 27,000 tons, armed with twelve 12 inch guns.  A Dreadnought era battleship and was sunk in postwar weapons tests.
Laid down on January 25 1910 at Camden, N.J., by the New York Shipbuilding Co. She was launched on January 14 1911; commissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on September 17 1912 with Capt. Roy C. Smith in command.

It was hard to get pictures without any glare. I have shown the full width along with some closeups. Included is a closeup of some of the officers on of the ship. If anyone recognizes any of them or has any other information feel free to contact me.

 

The photo does have a 1/2 inch horizontal closed tear at the left edge.
