In 1983 Side Gallery commissioned Bruce Rae to document the declining Tyne shipbuilding industry. He captured the trades, the awe-inspiring scale, the powerful structures that appeared everywhere he looked. He documented Swan Hunter, Clark Hawthorn Marine Engine Works, Cleland’s, Neptune, Smith’s Repair and Readhead’s, the last two already in the process of closure.
