When Earles Shipyard closed in the 1930s, East Hull cried
With a huge crane that had dominated the skyline, Earles had carved a significant role in British Shipbuilding, with ships for the Chilean as well as the Royal Navy from the 1840s.
In this talk, Rob Bell outlines the fluctuating fortunes of British and Global shipbuilding with details of how Hull's iconic shipyard responded to the shift from wooden ships powered by the sails to ironclads powered by steam and then steel ships run on sophisticated turbines.
This is a compelling story of how livelihoods depended on Earles adapted to a changing market.
