Launch Of The Titanic 1912 8x10 Old Photo
The RMS Titanic was an Olympic-class passenger liner owned by
the White Star Line and was built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard
in Belfast, in what is now Northern Ireland. At the time of her
construction, she was the largest passenger steamship in the world.
Shortly before midnight on 14 April 1912, four days into the ship's
maiden voyage, Titanic struck an iceberg and sank two hours and
forty minutes later, early on 15 April 1912. The sinking resulted
in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one
of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The high
casualty rate was due in part to the fact that, although complying
with the regulations of the time, the ship did not carry enough
lifeboats for everyone aboard. The ship had a total lifeboat
capacity of 1,178 people, although her maximum capacity was 3,547.
A disproportionate number of men died due to the women and children
first protocol that was followed.
