There is an excellent book ( 2 volumes ) Brocklebanks 1770-1950 by John Frederic Gibson which has a number of pictures of some of the sailing ships .
E bay often has copies at a reasonable price .

Look in my gallery and you will find some scans of print given to me when Brocklebanks moved from Liverpool office to London .

Regards Derek
