Shipbuilding. "Liberty" ships. This worker in the mold loft is painting over the marks made on steel plates from wooden templates, or patterns. The original marking is scratched onto the steel, and this man brings them out in white. All parts are prefabricated in this huge Eastern plant which formerly turned out freight cars. The completed sections are then carried six miles to the ways on flat cars. Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyards Inc., Baltimore, Maryland
