The view from the INDIANA's fantail, forward 

This image is of the INDIANA clearly shows her aft turret bristling with 13 inch guns as well as her port turret of 8 inch guns. The supports extending above the hatches and aft from between the 13 inch guns are supports for canvas awnings. These would be removed in times of battle. This photo was obviously taken in colder weather and the shade of the awanings no needed.
