Pearl Harbor bombing. Destruction. Smoke pours from the USS Shaw, bombed dry dock (right center) while in the foreground lies the capsized USS Oglala, a minelayer. To the left is the 10,000 ton cruiser, USS Helena, struck by an aerial torpedo on the starboard side. The concussion caused the Oglala, formerly berthed alongside the Helena to flood and she turned over after being brought to dock. At the extreme left, may be seen some of the superstructure of the USS Pennsylvania and at the right appears to be the USS Maryland burning
