Dr David Clampin of Liverpool John Moores University and Ian Murphy from the Merseyside Maritime Museum are collaborating to research the shipping advertising collections at NML. The research will result in an associated publication, and potential future museum exhibition.
Mapping Memory of the Waterfront is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council and involves the University of Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum and film-makers Sam Meech and Tim Brunsden. The aim of the project is to collect the first-hand experiences of retired seafarers, craftsmen, office workers, café customers and others who lived, shopped and worked in Liverpool's waterfront district. Information will be used to create an interactive map online. A film for display at the Merseyside Maritime Museum is also planned.
