Yarwoods Josher Motor Plans


Featured Posts

Does anyone know if you can still get copies anywere of the Yarwoods drawings for a Josher motor.

Unfortunately my copy that I had from  Lawrence Hogg years ago as gone a miss. Can find some Town and Star class ones.

That opens a wider question. Does anyone know what happened to Lawrence Hogg's huge archive of boat plans and photographs?  

And the same question in relation to Harry Arnold's photo archive?

As far as I recall, his family donated it to the CRT museum at Ellesmere port, against his wishes.

I gave dad's slide collection to Lawrence as he didn't want them just lost in a museum, so they have ended up there now

 

I think Harry's daughter has taken over his collection

Which is a good reminder, particularly in these troubled times - make a will, and specify what you want done with your more treasured collections, if you have any. It's my personal opinion that everybody who has anything either financially of worth or a treasured collection, regardless of age, should make a will specifying your wishes.

It’s my understanding also that Harry’s daughter is curating his collection.

Absolutely right Dave.  I recently talked to Harry Arnold's widow and daughter about this, but I suspect that it might be a slow process.  There were rather a lot of photos!
