Shipyards of British Columbia. The Principal Companies, by G.W. Taylor.

An account of the creation and growth of the province's major shipbuilding and repairing firms, including Yarrow, Wallace, Bullen and Coughlan. It also relates the story of the men and women who worked in the industry, as well as the dramatic marine accidents that brought work to the salvage tugs and ship repairers.  A large selection of historic photographs complement this first comprehensive history of  one of B.C.'s most vital industries.
