Wartime Shipbuilding Photographs, San Francisco Bay: 1940-1945
A photographic chronicle of over thirty wartime shipyards in the Bay Area during Wrld War II, when over a thousand ships were built in a thousand days. The amazing story of how American shipbuilding, a declining industry in 1939, rose to the challenge and grew into an unprecedented colossus employing over 50,000 workers. Old yards like Bethlehem Shipbuilding and Moore Dry Dock Company were revitalized and new "ship factories" such as Kaiser in Richmond, joined together to build an armada larger than any the the world had ever seen. Inexperienced workers from all parts of the United States flooded into hastily-built Bay Area housing, received expedited training, and began building ships.
