1941 Horizontal photograph of the Hawaii sky filled with smoke as the USS Shaw is ablaze after the surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. An important and tragic image with a poignant handwritten note on the back that was obviously written at the time this was still fresh in people's minds, this has partial stamps visible which clearly indicate this is a Vintage 1 example off the original negative from 1941! We have only handled a few of these images that are actually from WWII with this example being perhaps the best!
