All comments, corrections and extra information very welcome as this blog is the starting point towards my writing a book about the yaird, the workers and the ships of Robb's.
My personal interest? The Henry Robb who started the firm was my great grandfather.

I recently purchased an old copy of the 1946 HMSO publication “Build the Ships”. Whilst it does not seem to mention Robb’s, nor even Leith, in the text (though it is dense, so I may have missed it in my two fairly comprehensive scans) it includes some good generic information and insights, so I plan to review it over a series of posts for my own benefit as well as that of others researching similar matters.
