The G. M. Standifer Construction Company built three shipyards on the Columbia River for the World War I effort, two in Vancouver and one in Portland. This view shows the Vancouver yard that built wooden ships.

The other Vancouver yard, located down river, concentrated on metal-hulled ships. The clouds, the quality of light, and the patterns of the ship hulls create a striking photo, which also provides a detailed look at many of the buildings in the area. The bridge on the left is the Burlington Northern Railroad Bridge.

The photo appears to have been taken from the new Interstate Bridge, which opened in 1917.
