A long long time ago (actually in October 2009) I published this post about the USS Long Beach in which I mentioned that “She had the highest bridge of any ship in the US Navy smaller than an actual aircraft carrier”. Gus K tipped me about the Albany-class cruisers which came second on that ranking scale.

Here is the Chicago next to the Long Beach, for comparison:

Except for that factoid we can also see that they were kinda ugly…..

Many thanks for the tip (and the well documented emails) Gus!

The battleships of this era are all kinda ugly, form over function I guess, but this one is indeed spectacularly so.
Thanks to Colin C. for the tip.
