The photographs are mainly organised according to the shipping company owning the vessel at the time the photograph was taken.
There are exceptions where the Allens just recorded the name of the ship without further information, classified the ships according to type or failed to record any information at all. These are accessible from the links further down the page from the main content.
The Allens had only limited access to information about the ships but made a pretty good job of recording information in the circumstances. Many people have contacted me since the site went online with additional information and I decided to enhance and correct the data collated by the Allens. Given that there are over 5,000 photos in the collection this is a mammoth task and will take some years.
Note: The links below are colour-coded. The purple links are to pages where I have updated the information; the black links are to pages with data as recorded by the Allens.
