1) SUNDERLAND SHIPBUILDERS LTD enclosed ‘factory’ and revitalised shipyards

In or around 1976, Sunderland Shipbuilders Limited published a booklet - a general sales or promotional booklet, it would seem, to feature its properties, i.e. the 'ship factory' at Pallion (previously Doxford) along with its two associated traditional yards - those previously of 'Sir James Laing and Sons Limited', at Deptford & of 'Joseph L. Thompson and Sons, Limited', at North Sands.

The booklet is of 20 pages. Images of the booklet have been provided to the webmaster & I present here 17 of those 20 pages. 17? I have omitted two pages which were entirely blank. And the rear cover also which is blank except for the name of the company, stated to be 'Sunderland Shipbuilders Limited'.

Each thumbnail image below is 'clickable'. And the image on each of the pages that you come to can be clicked again to see that particular page in a very large size indeed.

2) 'SUNDERLAND SHIPBUILDERS LIMITED, PALLION, THE LARGEST COVERED SHIPYARD IN THE WORLD'

Another booklet that Sunderland Shipbuilders Ltd. published (in 1974 or maybe 1976?) was entitled 'PALLION, the largest covered shipyard in the world'. Of 28 pages, with front & back inside covers entirely blank. Came in a slip case as you can see at left. It introduced the new covered shipyard at Pallion, with photographs, plans of the facilities, etc.

A copy of the booklet sold in Dec. 2011 for GBP 12.73 or approx. U.S. $20.54. Another copy of the booklet was sold on Sep. 5, 2012, in a lot which however included a second booklet already shown above - 'Sunderland Shipbuilders Ltd – enclosed ‘factory’ and revitalised shipyards'. A third copy of the booklet was available in late Sep. 2012. It sold for U.S. $24.99. A copy is available in the 'Tyne & Wear Archives', I learn. The transcribed text & images is available on John Bage's Pallion web site. Here.

Now, thanks to the kindness of Jess Worley, we are able to show you the booklet from cover to cover. It would seem that there were at least two versions of the booklet - one with the images on pages 9 & 10 below replaced with 4 acetate 'flip' pages & with other modest changes.
