"The ship was inactivated in San Francisco in September of 1948 and decommissioned in March of 1949. BOTH catapults were removed during deactivation prior to decommissioning and the mast was stepped at that time as well. The boot topping is an ragged condition suggesting the ship has not been dry docked yet as part of her inactivation which would take approximately 30 days. The Radar installation is an SC-2. The ship is flying a Commissioning Pennant making the photo pre March 1949.
Thus, the photo had to have been taken between October, 1948 and January 1949 - at San Francisco."
