Palmers of Jarrow charts the history of the famous Tyne shipbuilding company which between its foundation in 1851 and its collapse in 1933 launched over 900 vessels. As well as describing the ships that were built there, the spotlight is thrown on the workers of Jarrow. From the revolutionary iron-hulled steamships of the 1850s to the magnificent warships Resolution and Queen Mary, then the catastrophic decline of the Great Depression, the achievement and human cost of shipbuilding is documented.
