RMS TITANIC 

The world’s most famous liner

NOSXI.jpg

Quite possibly the most famous liner ever built, RMS Titanic was the second in a trio of 'Olympic'-class ships constructed for the White Star Line from 1909-1915. At the time of her launch, Titanic claimed the title for the largest ship in the world and boasted a standard of luxury never before seen at sea. Tragically she was lost with 1,503 passengers and crew after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic on her maiden voyage.

Detail showing the three different types of lifeboat used aboard Titanic. In the event of the sinking, the smaller 'collapsible' type boats at the foot of funnel No. 1 floated free of the ship rather than being properly launched.

A section of hull amidships. Note the canvas screen erected along the promenade deck to provide shelter for passengers lounging on deck chairs in this area. The triangular frames mounted along the promenade deck are outriggers for aiding in loading the ship's coal bunkers way below at the waterline.
