RMS Titanic, the Ship of Dreams

April 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am

Titanic was a ship who truly lived up to her name. The second of the mighty Olympic-class ocean liners, she was dubbed the ship of dreams, where her builders and crew bragged how not even God could sink her. She and her sister Olympic were the pride of the Belfast shipbuilders of Harland & Wolff, as no ocean liner before them were larger, or more beautiful. Titanic embarked on her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK on April 10, 1912, and after stops in Cherbourg, France and Cork, Ireland, she left towards the open sea towards New York City. The richest passengers were there to experience a luxurious vacation on the open seas, while most of the second and third class passengers were heading towards a new life in the Americas.

 

Fate, however, is unpredictable, and often cruel. On the night of April 14th, only a day away from her destination, a frantic message echoed the telegraph lines of the Atlantic:

 

"CQD CQD THIS IS TITANIC"

 

"MOUNT TEMPLE TO TITANIC
WHAT IS THE MATTER?"

 

"TITANIC TO MOUNT TEMPLE
CANNOT READ YOU OLD MAN BUT HERE MY
POSITION 41.46N 50.24W COME AT ONCE
HAVE STRUCK BERG"
