Photo #2, small brick building was a latrine, or toilet facility.  Enjoy the website. My Dad worked as a welding "counter" most of the existence of the yard.

The new Liberty Ship Memorial @ Bug Light Park shows a photo identified as the "Broadway Plate Yard". This was located approx. 3 miles from the main yards, connected by rail.

I am assuming that this was located where the present day Megquire & Jones Steel Co. is. Can anybody supply additional information on this facility ? Photos, diagrams &/or map, history, etc. ?

I am especially interested in the shipyards railroad, also. Any and all information regarding rail activity would be much appreciated.
