Douglas' Under Construction and Launching in 1930
from the Maine Maritime Museum Archives
These are poor quality photocopies from the museum. Quality photo reprints are expensive. In 1995, I passed through Bath, Maine while on vacation. I saw and held the actual contract that Roebling signed to have the Black Douglas built - for about $256,000 - what a deal! If you want to get these and other photos, contact the Maine Maritime Museum at the Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine.
You can see the amid-ships opening for the engine room in the deck.
This picture is a close up of the workmen (rivitors?), which is amid-ships.
