About the World Ship Society Photo Library

The World Ship Society has in the World Ship Photo Library (WSPL) one of the largest collections of maritime photographic material in the world. The collection is the result of many generous donations and bequests by members of prints, slides and negatives over many years. It is used to provide material for maritime books published by the Society and other publishers, the Society’s monthly magazine Marine News, WSS calendars, monthly offers of prints and individual requests for specific ships from members.

Members are asked to limit their specific requests to no more than thirty ships at any time. However, there is no limit on the monthly offers.
