[Photograph of R. W. Coyne in U.S.S. Texas Navigation Office]

Description: Photograph of two men in a small office on U.S.S. Texas. A note included with the photo describes the scene: "The view of the navigation office to the right of the entrance and opposite the desk: The individual standing is R. W. Coyne, a photo striker. He did not live in the office. He is probably using a paper cutter to trim the borders of photographs. I (sewing) am seated on the cover of an opening through which 40mm clips of ammunition were passed to supply the 40mm quad just outside the office door. In the far corner is a filing cabinet with one drawer partially open. A shelf was attached to what I assume was part of the structure for the mast. On the shelf is a barograph which made a record of changes in the atmospheric pressure. On top of the barograph is the telephone. The table (or desk) was quite high. Note that the top of the table is above Coyne's waist. I sat on a tall stool when I worked on weather maps. The lower right corner of a map is visible in the lower left side of the photograph. The corner of the map is fastened down with a thumb tack. The top of the table was covered with a dark red composition which permitted thumb tacks to be used, but its surface was smooth and hard enough to be used as a writing and drawing surface. The table was supported by metal brackets, and I believe there was a shelf under the table. The top edge of the table was against the bulkhead."
