A useful notebook to promote Wivenhoe Shipyard

Otto Andersen produced these to promote his Yard in the late 1920s

Page created by Peter Hill with help from John Stewart and Mike Downes

Otto Andersen bought the Wivenhoe Shipyard in February 1925. This complimentary booklet was obviously something he produced to help promote business for the Yard.  Whilst it is not dated, it must have been produced not long after he bought the Yard from Rennie, Ritchie & Newport Shipbuilding Co. Ltd because all of the vessels included in this little booklet had been built at the yard by that former company.

On one of the pages, it gives the telephone number of the Yard as Wivenhoe 1.
