Join us in the Let’s Talk space as we explore our collections and bring out a selection of materials not normally on display. 

We will be displaying some of James Wotherspoon’s collection of 41 folio albums chronicling the rise and progress of shipbuilding and shipping on the Clyde, the West Coast and the Channel, from the Comet in 1812 until the 1930s.

The volumes contain over 4000 illustrations of ships, portraits of shipbuilders and engineers, ship owners and captains, drawings of flags and funnels and views of lighthouses, piers and railway stations.
