John H. Marsh Maritime Research Centre

John H Marsh Maritime Research Centre

Named after the Cape Town born innovator, publisher, author and maritime historian (1914-1996), the centre is a blend of old and new.

It is designed as a place for serious study by those interested in the preservation of South Africa's Maritime heritage.

The core of its reference material is the library of the John H Marsh Maritime Collection with its several hundred shipping reference books going back to the 1800's. The Collection also features the original negatives of photographs of 9200 ships that called at Cape Town in the last century. A catalogue of these photographs is maintained on this Internet site.

In the past people have "gone to sea" to better their circumstances. In that tradition it is a specific aim of the Centre to use the Internet to help open new horizons to the disadvantaged community who might otherwise not have access to such a facility.

Internet users can order copies of the photographs from the collection
