J.A. Alexander & Sons of Preston
Andrew Peter has asked for help in finding information about the above firm. In his own words:
“I am researching the history of J.A. Alexander & Sons of Preston, those once famous designers/builders/racers of model yachts in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s.
Perhaps unique in that they built and competitively raced serious A Class yachts, and also produced ‘toy boats’, model yachts and even motor boats, during their long history.
I have been tasked to produce a definitive ‘ Alex’ history by the Vintage Model Yacht Group for publication in their ‘ Turning Pole ‘ magazine. http://www.vmyg.org.uk/
Can I therefore request that you post a request for information regarding J.A Alexander & Sons. Any documents, history, pictures, anecdotes, boats still surviving, archive material, etc. would be most welcome. I will leave the wording up to you – but please feel free to call me to discuss.
I am happy to receive this directly – at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively , my telephone contact info is 0151 639 3612 / 0758 388 2363
regards – Andrew Peter
