They are blueprints that include the hulls in profile; shell expansion; deck plating; girders, beams and hatch assemblies; aft gun platforms; bulkheads, shaft and pipe tunnels and water and settling tanks; engine and boiler room casings; and cross sections of various decks. Collection is open for use.
