View of the Great Lakes Engineering Works at Ecorse/River Rouge, Michigan. Ships under construction at the yard. A ship is on the ways ready to launch. Ship yard buildings are seen and yard workers climbing over the floating dry dock to view the launch. (The blocks on the floating dry dock support the vessels when they are brought to rest for repairs.) Many spectators are gathered to watch the launch. An American flag and bunting are displayed near them. An executive motor launch maneuvers near the spectators and two Tug boats are standing by in water to move the ship after launching. A lake freighter passes on the Detroit River in the background.
