Industry at Time of War 1914-1918

During WWI the industries of Clydebank and Dumbarton including the Singer Manufacturing Company, the shipyards John Brown's, Beardmore and Denny's were all engaged in a massive war effort. Ships such as HMS Ramillies, the Lusitania and the Aquitania were built at this time.

Ammunition, aircraft, tanks, submarines, and airships were just some of the huge range of the industrial output in the area during the war.

The exhibition features photographs from West Dunbartonshire Libraries' local history collections.
