Kaiser Permanente No. 1, Richmond CA

Most recent update: October 13, 2010.


Permanente Metals Corporation's #1 Yard was one of the original nine emergency yards, built with 7 ways by Todd and Kaiser in 1940 as Todd-California Shipbuilding, to build "Ocean"-class cargo ships for Britain.  Kaiser subsequently bought Todd's interest in the yard and renamed it.  It closed at the end of the war.  The yard was located at the west end of Wright Avenue: see the site from the air on Google here.

Hull # 544, the "Red Oak Victory", is being restored.  Visit her at her berth at Terminal One in Richmond, California, or on the web at www.redoakvictory.org
