Andrew Armitage

Liverpool University Press

Andrew Armitage’s study of Workman, Clark and Co. shows how the interplay of family and commercial interest within the context of Ulster led both to the rise and decline of the firm and shipbuilding in Northern Ireland in general. He uses the meteoric course of Workman, Clark and Company as a barometer for economic development in Belfast, exploring how shipbuilding in Ireland was doubly precarious – existing between two divergent economies, dependent on expatriate entrepreneurs, partly upon expatriate labour and almost entirely upon cross-channel markets.
