but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!" -Irish Proverb

A 1951-1953 photo tour with the USS TOLEDO CA-133. Thanks to Shipmate, Jack Bittman, T Division, 6/51 - 7/53 for providing these photos.
Chuck Richards photos were provided to our website from his personal collection. These photos brought back fond memories for me and I'm sure you will enjoy them as well.
Most are from 1956 In Tokyo, Kobe, Okinawa, Hong Kong and Iwo Jima. Some were taken at sea in various operations. The rest were taken in 1957 in San Francisco and Vancouver, BC.
We were recently contacted by Harlan R. Martin, the son of a shipmate, Elga Ray Martin. Harlan and his mother found some videos taken during Elga's tour of duty on Toledo.They can be viewed on this page.
