   The author of this world popular and famous publication, Ian Johnston, who is a professional graphic designer having a deep interest in ships and their construction, presents the perfect and rare collection of the selected stunning shipyard photographic images, most of which have never been published anywhere before. The Clydebank ship construction yard, although known mostly for capital vessels and large liners, did build a vast range of the vessels between 1914 and 1920. This book includes two hundred images intended to depict in really unprecedented detail every single technical aspect of the shipyard's output, from Aquitania (1914) to Enterprise (1920). These images chronicle the huge impact that the war had on the working conditions in the ship yard, and especially in the introduction of women to the workforce. The publication is a remarkably vivid portrait of the lost industry at the very top point of its success. The quality of the photos contained in the book is truly incredible and the descriptions are accurately detailed and very interesting to all categories of readers regardless of their background. The vast majority of the images are focusing on the construction of the fifty-four vessels that took place at the shipyard in the period 1914-1919...
