This drawing depicts the location of U.S. ships at Pearl Harbor at about 8 AM, local time, on the 7th of December, 1941.

The U.S. Naval History & Heritage Command tells us more about this image:

Chart showing the positions of ships inside Pearl Harbor at the time of the Japanese Attack, at about 0800 on 7 December.

The orientation of the compass direction arrow in the chart's center is turned approximately 45 degrees too far in a counterclockwise direction. Some of the ships moored in "nests" in the northern part of the harbor are listed in incorrect order.
