Raleigh was one of the Omaha class scout cruisers of the 1916 shipbuilding program. Constructed at Bethlehem Quincy, she entered service in 1924. She saw peacetime service in both the Atlantic and Pacific fleets, and was moored on the far side of Ford Island, opposite Battleship Row, during the attack of 7 December 1941. A single torpedo amidships on the port side left her struggling to remain afloat, but she survived. In this view a tug has brought a barge loaded with salvage pontoons alongside, while the capsized target ship Utah lies in the background.
Raleigh was repaired at Pearl Harbor and overhauled at Mare Island, then operated thoughout the Pacific, with much of her time spent in Alaskan waters. Towards the end of the war she shifted to the Atlantic for training duties, and was placed out of commission soon after the war ended.
