4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book. Good on more than one level
As an ex professional warship photographer ( C & S Taylor ) and a great admirer of pre-1920 ship photography I was looking forward to this book. The quality of the period's really big negatives on glass plates, each individually developed, gave superb results difficult to achieve even with today's technology.

Now it is finally available, am I pleased with this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Seaforth Publishing
Greatly disappointed in this volume, particularly at the price. Whilst the quality of photgtraphs is not in doubt, the monotany of the shots is too repetative. It is mostly hull views and panoramas of the completed vessels. There is only one or two shots of the internal machinery but none from the aspect of its internal as-built spaces in the ship. The most we see is...

This review is from: Clydebank Battlecruisers: Forgotten Photographs from John Brown's Shipyard (Hardcover)
All Battlecruisers dealt with are WW1,Hood,Repulse,Inflexible, Australia and Tiger.Photos are clear and full of detail of how these ships were built from start to leaving the yard.Also good shots of the ships in the fitting out basin along with other types of war ships.I found the shots in the fitting out basin with cranes etc. very interesting as the basin with crane has been preserved as 'The Titan ',at Clydebank .Recommend a visit and walk to the crane as the basin is much as it was, so you can let your imagination run riot.With the book and the Basin you get a very good idea of the size of the Battlecruisers. Photos are backed up with good text but the photos are the stars of the book!At your own risk you can get beneath the basin sides and see lots of original bits and get an idea of the hight of the dockers,small.

Greatly disappointed in this volume, particularly at the price. Whilst the quality of photgtraphs is not in doubt, the monotany of the shots is too repetative. It is mostly hull views and panoramas of the completed vessels. There is only one or two shots of the internal machinery but none from the aspect of its internal as-built spaces in the ship. The most we see is boring external shots of the screws! Not worth the money; an expensive modellers book perhaps.

A different point of view. Seeing the ships fitting out and being completed gives one a better understnding of the circumstances under which they were built in their times.
