Boats In Bottles
The exhibition consists of nearly 40 model boats set in bottles that represent the life work of Mr Richard Massey.  Mr Massey is the model maker of this private collection currently on display and during his lifetime has worked on or captained each of the model boats presented. Mr Massey has progressed from Ship’s Peggy to Ship’s Master working in the shipping industry from 1951-2013.  Mr Massey has generously lent his collection to the St Helens History Room for display purposes and the History Room is delighted with the exhibition.

Available for viewing until March 2017.
