Blueprints of USS TUSCALOOSA (CA-37)

Here are links to blueprints of USS Tuscaloosa.   These blueprints are from an original set used in the construction of the ship. They are "pocket plans" which were carried around during construction by a foreman or a supervisor at the shipyard. The originals measured about 6" x 30" and were traditional looking blueprints with white on blue (see here). The images presented have been reversed to black on white and cleaned up for greater clarity.
