Scope & Content Magazine advertisement: 11,200 Ships of All Sizes and Types Built, Converted Repaired! ... that's the score to date in 10 Todd Shipyards!

Full page black-and-white advertisement published in Fortune, April 1944, page 301. Full leaf, 10-3/8" x 13" high, as removed from publication. Text is in notes.

Hoboken was one of the ten Todd Shipyard locations stated in the ad. It was known as the Tietjen & Lang Yard.

The listed cities that have Todd locations is actually fifteen although the text states ten. Even if the New York area yards (including Hoboken) and Seattle - Tacoma are condsidered as one, the count is still greater than fifteen.

11,200 Ships of All Sizes and Types Built, Converted Repaired!
... that's the score to date in 10 Todd Shipyards!

That's the wartime accomplishment of more than 145,000 men and women in Todd yards from Coast to coast — helping to lick the biggest shipyard job in history.

In tonnage — it adds up to more than three times the size of America's entire pre-war merchant fleet.

But the best thing about that 2-year total is what it means in terms of global warfare.

It's a score that means top speed in building, repairing, converting the merchant vessels andfighting ships needed to wage war on the seven seas—and to win!
