At the outset of World War II, the four Richmond Shipyards were built along the Richmond waterfront, employing thousands of workers, many recruited from all over the United States, including many African-Americans and women entering the workforce for the first time.
Point Richmond was originally the commercial hub of the city, but a new downtown arose in the center of the city. During the war the population increased dramatically and peaked at around 120,000 by the end of the war.
It was populated by many department stores such as Kress, J. Once the war ended the shipyard workers were no longer needed, beginning a decades-long population decline. By 1960 much of the temporary housing built for the shipyard workers was torn down, and the population dropped to about 71,000.
