Radioman Second Class J. V. Miceli is shown in the foreground seated at the Model 19 teletypewriter used in copying MERFOX radio broadcast schedules. He is using the tape machine next to the teletypewriter to work with a message punched onto paper tape. Seaman First Class J. K. Wooster is seated at a Model 19 teletypewriter that was used to handle traffic to and from NSS, the Navy's long-range communications station at Annapolis, Md. Behind him are two Model 15 teletypewriters. The transfer panel on the rear bulkhead was used for connecting various teletypewriters throughout the ship. The photo may have been taken on 26 August 1946; it later appeared in All Hands magazine.

|81k||USS Adirondack (AGC-15) off Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, 28 July 1951. This and the other two final ships in this class (AGC 15-17) had a heavy pole mast aft instead of a twin goalpost, and their lattice mast over the superstructure appears to have been taller.

|53k||USS Adirondack (AGC-15) in the James River Reserve Fleet, 27 May 1962. Visible to her starboard is the stern of USS Galilea (AKN-6) and the bow of USS Libra (AKA-12). The stern of Galilea shows the condition of the ship when her conversion from LSV to AKN was canceled incomplete in December 1946.
Libra and a few other early AKAs can be recognized by the heavy central kingposts added to the goalpost masts forward and aft of the bridge.
