Alabama Dry Dock & Shipbuilding Company

The Alabama Dry Dock & Shipbuilding Company of Mobile, AL was one of the United States largest shipyards. Employing nearly 19,000 people by 1943, they were an integral part of the war effort during WWII. Photographer George Strock did a nice photo essay for Life Magazine of the company and it's workers in 1941 (click on the pics for a larger view):
