The photo of the Steamer W. K. FIELDS on the left may have been taken at the Elizabeth Marine Ways during one of her repair trips there.  These repairs started when she is renamed from the Steamer IRONSIDES with work completed during September 1912.  She has a hole "stoved" in her and has repairs on July 1, 1914.  A new hull is put on her during December 1915 and finally she has extensive repairs during June 1918.
