Photograph showing a crowd of workers gathered around a platform during an award ceremony at the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland on Saturday, February 20, 1943. A woman is standing at a microphone on the platform, and members of the shipyard’s band, the Hellship Hellcats, are sitting behind her. The woman is unidentified but may be Albina welder Pat Mulligan, who sang at the ceremony. The event was held to present Albina with its second Star Award. Recipients of the Army-Navy “E” Award, which honored outstanding war production, were given stars at regular intervals if they maintained their record after receiving the E award.
