Mobile Shipbuilding, Mobile AL

Most recent update: March 10, 2016.


I can find little about the Mobile Shipbuilding Company.  It appears to have been located at the foot of Virginia Avenue, where the State Container Terminal is now, so it is probably the facility that in WWII was ADDSCO's "Lower Yard".  If anyone can tell me who owned it, or confirm its location, or add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
