Author: 'Blue Peter'
Abstract: One of several articles about Sunderland shipbuilder William Pile, written by 'Blue Peter' for the 'Sunderland Echo' not all of which have full details as to date, page, or confirmed source. The articles are highly admiring of the work of Pile's shipyard which turned out some of the fastest sailing ships of the mid-nineteenth century, including some of the famous tea clippers.
