Vintage Snapshot: Super Sleuths, Date This Photo

A harbor tug escorts the aircraft carrier USS RANGER (CV-61) past the Oakland Bay Bridge.

A friend posted this picture up on Facebook with date unknown. What we do know is that we have San Francisco skyline in the background for one. Two, we have an aircraft carrier in the background as the photo says. That gives us the name of the ship and it’s occupational life when looked up. Third, we have only a few cars to get a decent look at as to determine a date where upon the cars and ship align. I made my guess already now it is your turn. Naturally this photo attracted a lot of attention by former Ranger crew trying to date but none even close. They obviously aren’t into car spotting all that much or were too focused on their ship.
