About Builders
 Globe Iron Works, Cleveland
Globe Iron Works, (GIW), was originally a foundry, started in 1853 as Sanderson & Company: it was acquired and renamed by Henry Coffinberry, Robert Wallace and John Pankhurst in 1869. In 1871, these three acquired a 50% interest in a wooden shipbuilder at the foot of Elm Street, called Stevens & Presley, later George Presley & Company. In 1880, the three investors started a new shipyard to build steel ships. This yard was on the Old River, where the foot of West 49th Street would be if it went that far, and was originally called Globe Shipbuilding Company, (GSBC). The first three GSBC hulls were built for them by Presley while the new yard was under construction. In 1886, GIW and GSBC were merged under the GIW name. In 1887, GIW bought out Presley and renamed his yard Cleveland Dry Dock Company, (CDDC). In 1888, GIW bought William H. Radcliffe's shipyard at the foot of West 45th Street and the nearby Shipowners Dry Dock Company, which was at the foot of West 54th Street. In 1887, Coffinberry and Wallace sold their interests in GIW to M. A. Hanna and started a completely separate shipyard, Cleveland Shipbuilding. In 1899, all the GIW yards along the Old River became part of The American Ship Building Company, later becoming known as AmShip Cleveland. The yard closed after WWII but part of it is now home to Great Lakes Towing's shipyard
