Radiant II is launched into the River Wear

Description

Workers look on as the yacht Radiant II slides down the slipway into the River Wear at the Wear Dockyard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd, 29 March 1961 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/26431K) For an image of her ready for launch see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/14508024703/in/album-72157.... An image of her captured from Wearmouth Bridge is available here www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/14508024693/in/album-72157.... Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a selection of images from its Sunderland shipbuilding collections. The set has been produced to celebrate Sunderland History Fair on 7 June 2014. It's a reminder of the thousands of vessels launched on the River Wear and the many outstanding achievements of Sunderland?s shipyards and their workers. These photographs reflect Sunderland?s history of innovation in shipbuilding and marine engineering from the development of turret ships in the 1890s through to the design for SD14s in the 1960s. The Sunderland shipbuilding collections are full of fascinating stories. Some of these are represented in this set, such as the ?Rondefjell?, launched in two halves on the River Wear by John Crown & Sons Ltd and then joined together on the River Tyne. The set also shows the vital part that Sunderland?s shipbuilding industry played during the First World War. William Doxford & Sons Ltd built Royal Naval destroyers such as HMS Opal, which served in the Battle of Jutland, while other yards constructed cargo ships to help keep these shores supplied.

Tug boats towing Radiant II after launch

Description

View of the River Wear showing the yacht ?Radiant II? under tow after launch from the Wear Dockyard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd, 29 March 1961 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/26431AA) This set of images celebrates the 300th Anniversary of the establishment of the Port of Sunderland. The port authority was constituted in 1717 by Act of Parliament, which appointed the River Wear Commissioners to manage and improve the harbour and river. Since then the port has changed beyond recognition with the construction of piers, docks and quays and the dredging of the River Wear to make it wider and deeper. These developments were vital to the coal trade on which the region?s prosperity depended. The improvement of the river was also essential to the success of shipbuilding in Sunderland as well as allied industries such as marine engineering and ship repairing. These images are a reflection of Sunderland?s proud industrial history. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

Looking down the River Wear

Description

Aerial view looking down the River Wear, May 1959 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/22167G). This image gives a good view along the High Street and over the Wear Dockyard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd, where the cargo ship 'Manchester Fame' was under construction. The tanker 'Aluco' is at the fitting out quay of J.L. Thompson & Sons Ltd. This set of aerial images is intended as a short historical tour of the River Wear from the Piers to Pallion. It gives us an impression of what the River looked like during the middle years of the Twentieth Century, when it was a hive of industrial activity. Sunderland had an international reputation for shipbuilding and this is well represented in this set with images of its famous shipyards such as Austin & Pickersgill, J.L. Thompson & Sons and Sir James Laing & Sons. The River Wear was also home to a thriving marine engineering industry, reflected here by images of the engine works of William Doxford & Sons and George Clark. Other industries are also featured such as glassmaking and of course the key industry of coal mining. Mining is represented by images of Wearmouth Colliery and the riverside coal staithes, which were vital to the coal trade. These images reflect how much the River Wear has changed over the past 50 years, with the disappearance of traditional heavy industries. Those businesses may have gone but Sunderland can be proud of its industrial heritage and the men and women who worked on Wearside and helped to shape the City we know today.
