Responsible for some of the most famous ships ever built, among them the Blue Riband holder, Mauretania, and the aircraft carrier, Ark Royal, the Tyne shipbuilder Swan Hunter was at the height of its powers in the first half of the 20th century but by 1994 had completed the last vessel to be built at its Wallsend yard. This history and celebration of the company includes over 150 archive photographs and illustrations.
