The Dry Dock at Saint John, N.B.

Tom Wood's painting depicts a merchant ship (right) and a much smaller warship (left) in the large drydock at Saint John, New Brunswick.

The Saint John Dry Dock and Shipbuilding Company built a number of merchant ships and warships during the Second World War, and repaired others damaged by storm, collisions, or enemy action. The construction, maintenance, and repair of ships involved shipyards across Canada, employed well over 100,000 Canadians at its 1943 peak, and depended on other parts of Canada's wartime economy, such as the steel industry.
