Catalogue Contents

The catalogue has been launched with the collections from around 35 companies involved in the iron and steel industry across the Teesside area. These records are rich and varied in their nature containing staff records, financial records, minute books, photographs, plans and many other items with dates ranging from around 1850 through to 1967.

These collections include such notable companies as Cargo Fleet Iron Co. Ltd. (BS.CFI), South Durham Steel and Iron Co. Ltd. (BS.SDS) , Bell Brothers Ltd. (BS.BB) and Teesside Bridge and Engineering Ltd. (BS.TSB) but also some smaller companies such as Bowesfield Steel Co. Ltd.(BS.BOW) and Seaton Carew Iron Co. Ltd.(BS.SCIC)

The collections were catalogued as part of the British Steel Archive Project, and in the coming months a further 15 collections will be added to the catalogue from companies such as Dorman, Long and Co. Ltd, Bolckow Vaughan Co. Ltd., Skinningrove Iron Co. Ltd. and North Eastern Steel Co. Ltd..
