|29k||USS Sierra (AD-18) at Barcelona, Spain, 2 July 1977, thirty-two years later than the photo at Shanghai, above, and from a very similar angle, this view shows Sierra's profile had been very little altered (the white masts belong to a ship moored beyond Sierra). The most noticeable change is the absence of 5"/38 guns, the last of which was removed in the mid-70s.||Photo by Fabio Peņa|
