About This Book

Titanic's is one of the most famous maritime stories of all time. Showcasing a mixture of original artefacts, authentic reproductions, and items from Titanic’s sister ship Olympic, Titanic experts Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall have worked closely with White Star Memories to present the story of Titanic in 50 objects. Poignant original artefacts include postcards and letters mailed from the ship; the butcher’s gold pocket watch found in a lifeboat; violinist Wallace Hartley’s sheet music, recovered with his body; as well as carpenters’ tools used during construction; Turkish Bath wall tiles; and even a piece of coal from the wreck site. Reproductions and treasures from Olympic include a full-scale Grand Staircase ‘Honour & Glory’ clock; a Bronze Grand Staircase cherub; dining chairs; tables; washstands; glassware; silverware; bedspreads; uniforms; and much more besides.
