‘The Keel Line' and ‘Propellers of the City’ are significant works for Sunderland. Not only will they be important records of our maritime heritage, they will also act as a ‘Keel Line’ for the future development of the former Vaux brewery site as it progresses towards its new purpose as an urban business district.
“In creating the new city centre public space we saw the opportunity to celebrate Sunderland’s shipbuilding and industrial heritage. We want people in the city to become involved in the work, supplying photographs of relatives who worked in the shipyards and sharing their own thoughts on the many ships that sailed from Sunderland’s yards."
