Newhall Ship Chandlery Co. : 1899 Catalog

Recommended Posts




A model shipwright and an amateur historian are heads & tails of the same coin

current builds:

HMS Berwick 1775, 1/192 scratchbuild; a Slade 74 in the Navy Board style

Mediator sloop, 1/48 - an 18th century transport scratchbuild 

French longboat - CAF - 1/48, on hold

I love it! This one is a "save" for sure. I only wish such places still existed. (Davey and Co., London, and Toplicht, Hamburg, come close, but they're the last of the breed.) If only the prices were the same today. Actually, though, adjusted for inflation, the stuff in this catalog would be as pricey as anything sold today. Boats are a hole in the water into which you pour money, as they say.


Thanks for sharing this!
