Vickers Photographic Archive

The Archive was originally developed as a marketing tool and was used to illustrate the process and prowess of shipbuilding in Barrow to prospective clients. The images were taken by professional photographers employed by Barrow Shipyard and span a period of almost a century of work at the Yard from the 1870s until the 1960s.
