"The Porthole"

Click Image for Description
Despite efforts on the part of former crewmen to preserve her, the historic carrier Enterprise (CV6) was sold for scrap in 1958, thirteen years after she fought her final battles during World War II. During her final months in Bayonne, New Jersey, workers removed sections of the ship to serve as mementos of her storied service, including this porthole, the only one to survive the scrapping. Attached to a section of steel from the original ship, the porthole provides a window to the construction of the 'Big E'.
