Photos from: Post-war project brought ships to Orange

Brown and Root Construction won the government contract in 1945 to build docks and facilities to house 150 war vessels in reserve for the U.S. Navy in Orange. What became known locally as the "mothball fleet" was a prominent sight in Orange from post-World War II through the 1970s, when the ships were sold or moved.
