USS Midway view form Bridge

San Diego

View form the command bridge of the USS Midway. Usually the OOD (Officer of the Deck) has this view. Note, when the ship was underway the OOD would use the tower (immediately adjacent to the windshield wiper in this photo) as a reference point to steer the ship. Straight ahead in this case is not directly over the bow!
