The wooden hull of the sloop yacht 'Alice' being built in a yard in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Men and women stand on scaffolding around the ship, some posing for the photographer. Planks of wood, debris, and rocks are in the foreground. A grid is drawn over the photographs with a drawing of the profile of the hull as if someone tried to determine the dimensions of the yacht.
