About Builders
 Henderson D. & W. & Co. Ltd., Meadowside
D & W Henderson's Meadowside Shipyard was originally developed by Tod & MacGregor. David and William Henderson, who owned a marine engineering works in Finnieston, bought the yard in 1873. The Henderson brothers were also partners in the Anchor Line, for whom they built thirty-two ships between 1876 and 1911, as well as undertaking considerable repair work. Another regular customer was the Liverpool firm of Lamport & Holt, which placed orders for nineteen ships. They also built prestigious racing yachts, including Britannia for the Prince of Wales in 1893. - Harland & Wolff bought the ordinary shares of D & W Henderson in 1917 and took over the management in 1919. The firm launched its last ship in 1935, after which it ceased trading.
