Fernland - Bartram & Sons

  • Description

    The 'Fernland' was completed in 1948 for Fearnley & Eger, Oslo, by shipbuilders - Bartram & Sons. George Bartram and John Lister worked together as shipbuilders, operating from Hylton in Sunderland between 1838 and 1854, under the name Lister & Bartram. In 1854 George went into partnership with his son, Robert Appleby Bartram and moved location to South Dock in Sunderland. The company was handed down through 5 generations of Bartram’s before closing in 1978, following the nationalisation of 1977. Photographed by Turners. Turner’s was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in the early 1900s. It was originally a chemists shop but in 1938 become a photographic dealer. Turners went on to become a prominent photographic and video production company in the North East of England. They had 3 shops in Newcastle city centre, in Pink Lane, Blackett Street and Eldon Square. Turner’s photographic business closed in the 1990s.
