USS Cassin (DD-372) and USS Downes (DD-375) after Pearl Harbor

Here we see the Mahan class destroyer USS Cassin (DD-372) on the left and USS Downes (DD-375) in Dry Dock 1 at Pearl Harbor, on 23 January 1942, when repairs had begun on the damage caused by the Japanese attack. The picture has been taken from a position high up on a larger ship sharing the dry dock. If the date is correct then this isn't the battleship USS Pennsylvania (BB-38), which was also in the dry dock during the attack, as she had already put to sea by then.
