Shipyard

Museum Ref No: F4d_0023
Shipyard after launching of a vessel, c.1920s. Slipway in foreground with workmen behind and crowd of spectators in dstance along the shore. This photo shows the launch of a vessel, perhaps a concrete barge. It is difficult to identify the actual yard, but it would appear to be in the 1920s. (Possibly Lake Shipyard.) The slipway can be seen in the foreground, inclined down to the water, and is presumably the one down which the vessel is being launched. As can be seen, launchings were a great occassion when the whole workforce of the yard would turn out, besides their families and local people. The men in the foreground are in shirtsleeves, obviuosly having been engaged in the actual launch. The man in the centre, between the two groups, is carrying a sledgehammer or similar tool, presumably having used it to knock chocks away from the vessel on the slip. The people in the background are spectators, the men in suits and the women in their best dresses (Spinney, J, 1978).
