it looks like the American Shipbuilding yard in Lorain Ohio. The boat under construction I believe is one of the Tonawanda boats, based on the 2-tone color, and the shape of the forward cabins. The boats in question were the William M. Mills, LeGrand S DeGraff, and William B. Kerr, later sold to US Steel to become the Filbert, Crawford and House, respectively.
