The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Museum has a mural on the side painted by Sam Welty. It depicts the history of shipbuilding. The panels show a woodworker in the age of sail, a blacksmith in the Civil War era with the CSS Virginia in the background, the iconic hammerhead crane built in 1940, and the final 2 panels show male and female shipbuilders in the World War II era including a woman welding.
