The Archive contains over 9,000 original negatives, detailing work and life at the Barrow shipyard and engineering works, and has been made available in digital format both in the Museum and on the Museum's web site.

  • Around Barrow
  • Early Battleships
  • Early Submarines
  • Engineering
  • Field Armaments
  • Naval Armaments
