SS Jeremiah O'Brien in DryDock at Pier 70, San Francisco

Holly cow! When I saw this I just about pee'd in my pants! Talkin' about industrial landscape, it doesn't get much better than this.

 

I have moved on from Pier 80. This is a bit north, at Pier 70.

 

The Jeremiah O'Brien is one of only 2 Liberty Ships left from 2,751 that were built during WWII. It saw action at Normandy on D-Day, 1944. This ship is a National Historic Landmark, and is usually berthed at Pier 45 in San Francisco.
