About Builders
 Delaware River Iron Shipbuilding & Engine Works, Chester (Pa)
This shipyard was originally established in 1857 and had a distinguished career building fine ships. After closing in 1907, it was revived in 1913 and was acquired in 1917 by Averell Harriman's American Ship & Commerce Corporation. It is notable that the yard numbering system continued without interruption by five different companies. The yard was located at Front and Lloyd Streets in Chester: after it closed in 1924, it was redeveloped as a Ford assembly plant, which closed in 1961.
