Mare Island Project: November 2012
History: Mare Island Naval Shipyard was in operation for over 140 years, from 1854 until it was closed in 1996. During its high point in World War II, the shipyard population reached 46,000. Also during World War II the shipyard quickly set a record that was never broken, building the destroyer USS Ward, in 17 1/2 days. In addition to the Ward, Mare Island built 17 submarines, 4 subtenders, 31 destroyer escorts, 33 small craft, and more than 300 landing craft.
This is the last image of the series. Processing courtesy of Silver Efex Pro 2. I hope to return to Mare Island soon for some interior shots of the chapel and some of the other structures.
