Oops! I think that's a 1930--rather than 1940--pic of New Mexico; her cage masts are still in place.
Handsome looking ship either way! For years, I was used to the post-modernized version of this class of ship. These earlier photos really drive home the transition between pre- and early-WWI-era USN ships and their later kin.
