This is one of eight 18' markers that ring the Marina shoreline in Richmond, California. The design features the cutting edge of the bow of a victory ship with the symbolic "V" for victory at the top. The combined markers tell the story of war time Richmond of the Second World War in the words of those who worked on the home front in the Kaiser Shipyard where they launched a ship every five days -- 747 in all.
