J.A.Alexander & Sons

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 & SonsAny 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: andrewmcpeter@gmail.com.
Alternatively , my telephone contact info is  0151 639 3612 / 0758 388 2363

regards –  Andrew Peter

Wirral, Merseyside.”
