Exterior Views:  November 1926 thru August 1941
The photos shown in this period are limited for little noticeable alterations.  The only telling change was April - July 1935 when the tops of both masts were replaced with "birdbath" structures.  Airplanes varied but sometimes a type of airplane was removed then brought back.  This period ends before the August - October 1941 in the Norfolk Navy Yard which marked the beginning of several major changes through 1945.
