We need your experiences of shipyards of the River Clyde

Regrettably the first things to be incinerated when the Shipyards of the Clyde went into decline were records of employment.


We have historical photographs of course, orderly posed artisans without name or identity. We need to remind ourselves of the people who were the builders of extraordinary and beautiful things.


The polishers of fine furniture, the makers of lace, riveters, engineers and welder and the hundreds of trades and professions needed in the making of a ship.

We need your story. We need names, professions and photographs if you have them and anything else you can tell us. Your history deserves to be acknowledged and placed in the ‘Book of Artisans’.
