Inside of the pilot house of the Denison while under construction.
Description from Chuck Tilgner, July 2007
This is one of my favorite pictures of the Dennison tied up in front of HMS Bounty at the Jakobsen Shipyard in Oyster Bay, NY. The Bounty was built for the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" which was made in the late 1950s. When the shooting in the Pacific was done it was sailed to the Atlantic and docked for the winter at Jakobsen's. I think it was shown at the NY Worlds Fair the following summer. The crew had been on it for a long time and it was wonderful to see them sail it right in to Oyster Bay Harbor. Sailors were up running around in the rigging just like old times. Anyway the photo is an interesting contrast.
