Harland and Wolff, the shipbuilder to the world, enjoyed a mighty heyday before crashing into obscurity. This illustrated book chronicles its history from its creation to the present day. This is the fascinating story of arguably the world's greatest and best known shipbuilding company from glory days to collapse, told from the unique perspective of someone who was there at the time. Today the company is no longer involved in shipbuilding, now maintaining a small ship repair operation, but at its peak it employed more than 45,000 people. Employee and archivist Tom McCluskie sheds light on many little-known facts about the company, delves into the human interest stories, and recounts both the mighty zenith and ignominious end of this great company.
