About this Object

From the Bill Laxon Collection, a collection of around 250,000 index cards focussed mainly on 20th century shipping. Each ship's card gives details such as build date, any alternative names and references to the ship found in serials and books. Each card has a photograph which Bill Laxon collected from a variety of sources. The collection took volunteers nine years to alphabetise.
