"Newport News, Virginia. A small section of the shipyard, showing an overhead travelling ('Gantry') crane in the foreground. There are two ways on which ships are being built visible in the picture. The ship at far background is the [liner] S.S. America."[1] (corrected text) (the America was also built here; it served as troop transport USS West Point 1941-1946; it's now a sunken wreck in the Canary Islands)
