Behold the U.S.S. Ranger, the first U.S. Navy vessel designed to be an aircraft carrier.  Plopped in the water in 1934, the ship made it through WWII (though, due to its relative lack of speed, it stayed in the Atlantic) and was scrapped in 1947.

Nice poster design, though.  The stamp is 2.25″ x 3.5″
