Construction work continues on the hull of the cargo ship ‘Northbank’ at the shipyard of William Doxford & Sons, Sunderland, 27 September 1956 (TWAM ref. DS.DOX/4/PH/1/819/1/4)

This album documents the construction of the cargo ship ‘Northbank’ by the famous shipbuilding firm William Doxford & Sons at its Pallion yard, Sunderland. Most of these images are progress photographs, taken a week apart between September 1956 and January 1957 from approximately the same spot. They give a fascinating insight into how the vessel was built.
