USS Chancey (DD-3) at sea, pre First World War
Here we see the Bainbridge class destroyer USS Chancey (DD-3) at sea, some time before the First World War. Note the crew working on the raised foredeck. Both 3in guns can be seen on this picture - the foreward gun is clear, the rear gun is just seen on top of its platform.

Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
