Shipyards on the River Wear, 1949

Description

Aerial view of the River Wear in April 1949 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/2829B), showing the shipyards at Pallion and Southwick. 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.

Steel & Co. Ltd and the shipyard of Short Brothers

Description

Aerial view of the factory of Steel & Co. Ltd and the shipyard of Short Brothers, Pallion, Sunderland, May 1950 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/4734E). Steel & Co. produced a variety of engineering products, most notably Coles cranes. 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.

Looking up River to Pallion and beyond

Description

Aerial view looking up the River Wear, May 1959 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/22167J). The picture shows the engine works of George Clark in the foreground and the shipyard and engine works of William Doxford & Sons in the centre. The shipyard of Short Brothers Ltd can also be seen in the distance, just beyond Doxfords. 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.
