This chapter outlines the development of shipbuilding in Liverpool during the late seventeenth century to the late nineteenth century. It discusses the city’s initial success in the business but reports that due to high costs, competition from Sunderland and Canada, and a lack of demand, the 1890s saw the end of shipbuilding in Liverpool. The chapter also provides a detailed archive on Merseyside based shipbuilding, ship-repairing, and engineering companies, as well as a record on related trade businesses, such as supplying and manufacturing. Included in the collection of records are advertisements; wage books; engineering drawings; operational records; accounts; deeds; registers; ship specifications; and letters.
