Toledo Shipbuilding Company

Toledo Shipbuilding Company

This image shows the bustling Toledo Shipbuilding Company with several freighters in for repairs as well as at least 2 if not 3 ships getting built in drydock.  Since Craig Shipbuilding was first opened on this site, followed by the Toledo Shipbuilding Company in 1908, and then AmShip Toledo in 1952, over 160 ships were built here and untold numbers of them overhauled, repaired, and repowered.  The site is still being used as a shipyard by Ironhead Marine.
