USS Rochester CA-124 Heavy Cruiser, original photo 1948

Up for auction is this original 1948 Photograph of the USS Rochester CA-124 Oregon City Class Heavy Cruiser. This was photo made in Venice, Italy, between March 1 and June 14, 1948, when the ship made a Mediterranean tour as flagship for Admiral Forrest Sherman. Sherman’s task force was in the Mediterranean to be prepared for trouble during the formation of Israel. In the background of the photo you can see the Campanile and Basilica of the Piazza San Marco. The ship was commissioned Dec. 20, 1947, and would later receive six battle stars for service during the Korean War.
