Aerial view of the Southwick Yard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd

Description

Aerial photograph of the Southwick Yard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd, early May 1960 (TWAM ref. 3396/24229B). This shows the cargo ship ?Willowbank? in the foreground being fitted out, shortly after her launch on 26 April 1960 by William Doxford & Sons Ltd. Meanwhile the bulk carrier ?Iron Barque?, towards the centre of the image, nears completion at the Southwick shipyard of Austin & Pickersgill Ltd. 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.

'Naess Crusader' being fitted out at Manor Quay

Description

View of ?Naess Crusader? being fitted out at Manor Quay, Sunderland, 26 February 1973 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/61225D). The image also shows her sister ship ?Nordic Chieftain? in the early stages of construction (at the bottom right). These photographs were taken by the Newcastle-based firm Turners (Photography) Ltd. They celebrate the construction of the OBO (oil/bulk/ore) carrier ?Naess Crusader?, covering the early stages in January 1972 through her launch on 21 December 1972 to her completion and sea trials in July 1973. ?Naess Crusader? and her sister ship ?Nordic Chieftain? were built by Sunderland Shipbuilders Ltd at the firm?s North Sands Shipyard for Anglo Eastern Bulkships Ltd. They were the largest ships ever built on the River Wear. The memory of ?Naess Crusader? is integral to the Sunderland Keel Line, a new public artwork, opened in 2015, which celebrates the City?s shipbuilding heritage. The Keel Line is 291.7 metres long and that distance was chosen because it represents the full length of ?Naess Crusader?. This album is a reminder of Sunderland?s proud industrial heritage and a tribute to the skill and dedication of her shipyard workers.
