Above: An excellent side photograph of the USS Oregon arriving in San Diego, California. By the time this photograph was taken, newer and more powerful battleships had succeeded in making the USS Oregon and her sisters obsolete. Note the after mast and ant-torpedo boat destroyer guns on the thirteen inch turrets. This photograph provides a good representation of the small length of the ship. The square structure between the aft mast and the aft stack is a newly installed radio room (shack). See the "1956-Present" section of photographs for a picture of the radio shack today.
