Richmond is a city that celebrates its history. On Saturday, the sixth annual Home Front Festival in the Craneway Pavilion at Ford Point, paid homage to the importance of World War II in the shaping and growth of the city. Hundreds came and went throughout the sunny day, enjoying the interactive history booths, live music, and displays.

    Correction for photo 8.

    The Ford Point factory building was used to prepare tanks, jeeps, and trucks for shipment. It was not a shipbuilding facility.

    The Red Oak Victory was built at Shipyard 2, in the area where Barbara and Jay Vincent Park is now located.
