Ingalls Shipbuilding Sign

These ships were built at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for Moore-McCormack Lines, at a cost of $52 million. At the time, they were two of the largest passenger luxury ocean liners in the world and, to date, they have been the last passenger cruise ships built in the U.S.  This is the sign in front of the shipyard.  Enlarge it to see more.

The new Mooremack passenger liners utilize products, materials, and labor from all 48 states.  The map shows the origin of just a few of the thousands of items used.
