    Think the building is still there? If so, I wonder what it’s used for.

    Ted,

    Thanks for your comment, good question. I would like to see if someone could get the chance to visit the area in Hingham, Massachusetts to inquire on the current status of the facility.

    It would be great to get some nice panoramic outside shots including the building with the sea in the background. Inside shots would also be good that resemble the original one included in this post.

    Not sure anyone will see this, but the building in the photos was recently demolished and replaced with luxury condos and retail. It was inevitable, really, given the location right on the water in an affluent area and the state of disrepair of the building.

    It was very impressive though: about a third of a mile long and several stories high. The building was part of a complex built to product landing craft in WWII. Many hundreds were built during the war by thousands of workers, one of whom was my wife’s grandmother.

    Time moves on.
