About This Book

When one thinks of the building and fitting out of Titanic, it is not the Midlands that immediately comes to mind. Although the ship was built in Belfast, registered in Liverpool and sailed from Southampton, in fact around 70 per cent of her interiors came from the Midlands. This pivotal piece of research from Titanic expert Andrew Lound explores the role played by the people and the varied industries of the Midlands in the life of the most famous ship in the world. From interior fittings and crystal and plate to crew and passengers and local reactions, the story of the Midlands and Titanic is presented here for the first time.
