RMS TITANIC: The Wider Story

RMS TITANIC: The Wider Story

PATRICK MYLON    Book Number: 86387    Product format: Hardback

The author has been collecting White Star memorabilia since he purchased his first postcard in 1983. Here he explores many of the lesser-known aspects of Titanic's legacy using rare and previously unpublished images. He places fresh emphasis on the vessels, events and locations Titanic encountered during her short life. Here is all about her sister ship, the railway stations and the boat trains that served her, the vessels that sent ice warnings and those that responded to her distress calls. Competition and Construction, Maiden Departure, Ports of Call, Life at Sea, Warnings and Collision, Evacuation, The Fateful Night, By The Dawn's Early Light and Cunard to New York are among the chapters. One or two rare photos or diagrams per page including postcards such as the Custom House and Shipyards at Belfast 1856 and many of Titanic at sea in original paintings, before and during the disaster when excess steam is pouring from her funnels and settling by the bow. 10" x 9", 144 landscape pages, colour.
