Down But Not Out

The attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941

“December 7, 1941, Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor sinks the Arizona, Oklahoma and Utah. The Oklahoma was salvaged and scrapped. The remaining six battleships returned to duty. U.S. Losses: 2388 killed, 1178 wounded, 12 ships sunk or beached, 9 damaged, 164 aircraft destroyed, and 159 aircraft damaged.” This modern chrome postcard was published by the late WW2Cards.com. My guess is that the original photo started out as a black-and-white photo, and was taken from either Ford Island or Hickam Field.
