On her launch at Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast in May 1911, the Titanic was an awesome sight, a magnificent engineering achievement in a golden age of innovation and invention. Her extravagance and record-breaking size had other shipping rivals at their drawing boards.
The Titanic attracted the rich and famous and with them, being the celebrities of the day, world attention. Her sinking and the loss of over 1500 lives have made her name synonymous with tragedy.
Fascination has not waned, survivors are treated as celebrities, films were made, many stories written and nearly a century later the excitement continues. Illustrated throughout with 100 photographs and illustrations The Titanic tells the fascinating story from inception to the present day.
