Pidgeon-Thomas Iron Works, Memphis TN

Most recent update: January 11, 2015.


Pidgeon-Thomas was a family-owned fabrication business dating back to 1872, which turned to for the war effort, building 187 LCTs in 27 months - about one every four days.  The fabrication shop was at 107 East E. H. Crump Boulevard, at the intersection with South Main Street: this is now a large abandoned lot.  The LCTs were assembled in a separate facility, which was where the Pyramid Arena is now, just north of the I-40 bridge.  The company closed in 1988.  If anyone can provide any additional information about either the yard or the boats it built, please e-mail it to me at timcolton@aol.com.
