|Description: A scene from the construction of HMS 'Thunderer', the last ship built at Thames Ironworks. Here, workers are bending a hot ship frame on a massive bending plate. The workmen with hammers are driving in pivot points for the frame to be bent around, while other workers, shown hauling on the levers, are bending the frame using the pivot points.|
