Ships for the Seven Seas: Philadelphia Shipbuilding in the Age of Industrial Capitalism
Thomas R. Heinrich. Sustained by a skilled work force & the PA iron & steel (I&S) industry, Phila. shipbuilders negotiated the transition from wooden to iron hull construction earlier & far more easily than most other shipbuilders. Between the Civil War & WW1, Phila. emerged as the vital center of Amer. shipbuilding. Heinrich describes how entrepreneurial strategies & industrial change gave rise to major shipbuilding firms; how naval arch., marine eng’g., & craft skills evolved as I&S overtook wood as the basic construction material; & how changes in domestic & internat. trade & the rise of the Amer. steel navy helped generate vessel contracts for local builders. But, large-scale naval construction in the 1920s brought about the demise of the Phila. shipyards.
