Manitowoc in 1941. It was hull number 311 at the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co. The C&NW crew is working the C&O in the C&O slip. The slip to the right of the picture was where the Ann Arbor car ferries came in to dock.

Creator Description Wallace W. “Wally” Abbey's interest in photographing railroads started at Cherryvale, Kansas, where he visited his grandparents during World War II. He kept his camera with him as a journalism student at the University of Kansas, associate editor at Trains, and through a succession of progressively more responsible jobs in the railroad industry. This resulted in the award for lifetime achievement in photography from the Railway & Locomotive Historical Society in 2003. A multi-talented person, he also is known for originating the Soo Line’s red-and-light-grey color scheme of 1962.
