A Selection of the Post-War Ship Photographs of Basil Feilden
Basil Feilden (1908–1995) made a living by photographing ships in Liverpool during its heyday as a major shipping port. The 125 photographs in this collection date from 1950 to 1960 and are accompanied by details of each ship’s builder, date, gross tonnage, length and engine for the enthusiast, along with more general information about the ship and what it was doing in the Mersey at that time.
Burns and Laird
This volume from the Ships in Focus series is a photographic record of the ships of the famous Glasgow shipping company which played a pioneering role in developing British coastal and short sea steamship services until its demise in the 1970s. The book also includes vessels operated by the separate Burns and Laird lines before their amalgamation in 1922. The extensive captions give details of builders, engines and basic dimensions and outline each ship's history.
British Shipping Fleets
This second volume of British Shipping Fleets presents detailed histories and fleet lists of United Baltic Corporation Ltd, Howdens of Larne, Thomas Dunlop and Sons, Chellew Navigation Company Ltd, and Glover Brothers. The fleet lists provide technical and career details for each ship and, wherever possible, a black-and-white photograph. The book has an index of ships and colour illustrations of the companies' liveries.
