Description Photograph, reproduction of National Archives photo no. 165-C-482; stamp on verso. Typed caption on verso reads: "165-C-482, United States Navy Yard located on the south banks of the Tennessee River. Signal Mountain in the distance." According to James A. Hoobler (see Related Publications): "The river supply lines were as important as the rail lines in Chattanooga. The shipyard helped to maintain transportation lines up and down the Tennessee River. The large structure under construction here was a machine, boiler, and blacksmith shop. The purely decorative cupola would seem to indicate the Federal forces were confident they would be in Chattanooga for a long time since they were adding decorative touches to their buildings."
