Puget Sound Navy Museum, Bremerton, Washington

Bremerton Naval Base in Washington State - unconfirmed - photograph by Howard W. West Sr circa 1926.

This is an unconfirmed picture of what I think is the Naval Base at Bremerton, Washington, circa 1926. It was taken by my grandfather, Howard W. West Sr.. He was on the USS Arizona during its stay there for refitting and maintenance. I have photographs I’m trying to identify from his scrapbook of the base, ships, and area. My father may have been there for a short time as well.

The Puget Sound Navy Museum is in Bremerton, Washington, and is another place on my research list for the next time I head up towards Seattle.

The location of the museum is 251 First Street, Bremerton, Washington, and it is open Monday through Saturday from 10-4 and Sunday from 1-4, though closed Tuesdays during the Winter (Oct – April) so scheduling during the week needs to take that into consideration.

Hopefully they can help me identify some of the images from that time period and they may have more information on my grandfather’s time there.
