You've got some great razors there Andy:

I think the one in the top of the photo is a 50s Gillette Superspeed. The one in the brown bakelite box is a fat handle Gillette Tech (probably 40s) and the one without the box on the left is a Gillette Slim Adjustable (60s). The boxed razor at the bottom is a Gillette Slim Twist (I think).

If you're starting with traditional wet shaving, you've pretty much got your vintage collection complete.

I think the top one is a Rocket, the rest is correct though.

They all look in pretty good condition, but I would still be inclined to soak them for an hour or two in warm water and washing up liquid and then scrub gently with an old toothbrush before using.
