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 huge paper caption on the back from a year later with a ton of poignant information about the attack! We have only handled a few of these images that are actually from WWII with this example being perhaps the best, fully encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1! Condition and quality are both outstanding.
