This is USS Quincy (CA-71) in another photo in the aerial series taken by ZP-11. Notice the aft-most panel matches the drawing, but the cranes and catapults do not, these were the chages to the pattern that Quincy requested and got approved. Photo source: NARA 80-G-233814.

This is USS Quincy (CA-71) taken again by ZP-11 off the Atlantic coast on November 3, 1944. Note that aft stern panel here is painted to the deck. This was part of the changes to the drawing requested by Quincy, but apparently not completed until later. Photo source: NARA 80-G-289731.
