remembering the titanic

these are the cranes at the shipyard where the Titanic was built in Belfast, Ireland they are huge!
the city of Cobh, the last port of call before the Titanic's first and final voyage
the ticket office of the White Star Lines
When I was standing before these gates I couldn't help but feel the presence of the
all passengers who went through these gates with high hopes of starting a new
life in American. The excitement, the sorrow of leaving family and friends, wondering
what the days ahead would hold for them! And not one knowing the horror that
awaited them.
the Titanic memorial:
Commemorating R.M.S. Titanic and her last port of call on her
maiden and final voyage, April 11, 1912.
In special memory of the Irish emigrants and all
those who lost their lives in this great tragedy.
Memorial erected by the Titanic Historical Society, the Irish Titanic
Historical Society and the people of Cobh
the city of Cobh as seen from the edge of the wharf. I wanted
to see what the passengers would have seen as the ship
sailed out of the harbor. The last view of their country.
