Harland and Wolff

Formed in 1861, the shipbuilders famous for ships such as the Titanic and Olympic, HMS Eagle and Canberra, and are still refitting vessels such as the Bulford and Borgny Dolphin drilling rigs pictured here. The Musgrave Yard was developed between the wars and played a vital roile in producing naval vessels. In April and May of 1941 about 60% of the facilities were destroyed by German bombing, but within two years it was fully operational again.
