||The northern part of So.
Portland, Me, was transformed from a quiet
residential neighborhood into a bustling shipyard
between 1941 and 1945. As many as 30,000
people worked at the yards during those
years. Arthur J. Denis of Westbrook, ME, my
father, was one; so was my late ex-father-in-law,
Harold F. Bent of Gorham, ME.
This website is dedicated to them, their
fellow workers, and the magnificent work they all
on the drawing below to see a close-up of
the S. S. Jeremiah O'Brien, the last
surviving Liberty Ship built in
South Portland, Maine
