The following films come from the Hall Russell & Company collections at Aberdeen Maritime Museum. They were taken in and around the shipyard in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Although the films are silent they provide us with a window onto a vanished world; showing all the hustle and activity of a busy shipyard including launch parties and ships running trials.
