Overview

Between 1906 and 1920 the Clydebank shipyard of John Brown & Sons built five battlecruisers, each one bigger than the last, culminating in the mighty HMS Hood, the largest warship of her day. Like most shipyards of the time, Clydebank employed professional photographers to record the whole process of construction, using large-plate cameras that produced photos of stunning clarity and detail, although very few of the images have ever been published. This pictorial collection, with its lengthy and informative captions, offers ship modelers and enthusiasts a wealth of visual information simply unobtainable elsewhere.
