Work, engineering and construction

Stewart Bale collection online exhibition

This is the fourth in a series of online exhibitions dedicated to the Stewart Bale photographic collection to highlight the breadth of its subject matter.

This exhibition features some of the extensive engineering and construction projects undertaken in and around Liverpool and recorded by the firm of Stewart Bale. Selections cover the construction of the Queensway Mersey Tunnel, as well as the important role of shipbuilding in the area.

Stewart Bale also often recorded the processes and operations undertaken within the factory environment, providing a fascinating record of contemporary production methods and working conditions.
