SHIPYARDS

 
Over the 300+ years there have been many firms in the area. We know the most famous ones and almost certainly will have at least one family member who worked there. As the last generation of workers in the big yards comes to an end it is important to record their stories and explain what it was like to work there. This industry is what made the area what it is. It is what made many thousands of people who they are today. Do we want future generations to walk along the waterfront and only remember it for where McDonalds have a drive-through? Or where RBS have their mortgage centre? Please add your family's name to the database, email photographs, tell the stories....
