    Among the notable achievements of the shipbuilders Richard Dunston Ltd, was the design and construction of the modular TIDs (Tugs in Dock) in the early 1940s, which they welded together from eight separate pre-fabricated units, achieving a production rate of one every five days. This history of the Yorkshire firm is told principally by means of more than 200 archive photographs examining the company's vessels from the late 19th century to the 1990s.
