Bowenfrontpage.  Bowen Collection

The Frank Bowen Collection of maritime press cuttings is a collection of national importance. Compiled between 1900 and 1950, it spans the golden age of British merchant shipping. It covers all aspects of commercial and naval shipping, including a day by day account of World War Two at sea. Formerly held at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, the collection has now been acquired by Southampton Maritime Library. It has been microfilmed and is now available to the general public.
