Picture History
This picture was taken by Ted Parker about 0700 hours in Naples, Italy while on a launch heading out for a tour of "The Isle of Capri" (above).   "It was in November 1956, I saw the ancient city rising above the morning mist as a sailor might have viewed it a thousand years ago.  Yet there at a new sea terminal were the two most powerful, state of the art, guided missile cruisers in the world.  I thought it was a neat picture, it is one of the best pictures I have ever taken."
