Shipyard Side Launches

A wonderful compilation of ships being side launched from Collingwood Shipyard in Ontario-Canada and other shipyards around the world. Launching ships like this was dangerous work which sometimes resulted in workers getting killed or injured. School children would get out of school early and walk with their teachers down the main street of Collingwood to watch the latest ship being launched. The shipyard closed many years ago and Collingwood’s major place of employment disappeared forever. The shipyard was converted into residential area and a tourist destination.
