They would be very valuable for me. The page is designed by http://www.the-titanic.com. This is currently empty. Best regards Kay Wöhlert Reply Chris July 23, 2011 Sure, Kay, go ahead. Reply Gareth August 2, 2011 @ Kay – I live about 5 mins away from where she was built, i can grab some more recent photos of the H&W docks if you like? Reply Jack August 17, 2011 I wonder how much it tooked the builders to build such a big ship? Thanks for sharing those amazing and rare photos. Reply Titanic Stories September 2, 2011 Read more about the build of the Titanic in Belfast: http://www.the-titanic.com/Building-the-Titanic/The-Build.aspx Reply old hippie February 11, 2012 The solo worker standing on the fantail really brings into perspective just how big the ship actually was. The photo of the propeller’s and propeller shaft are a true eye-opener. That was one big ship. Reply Drew February 14, 2012 Look at those cheap rivets. Reply Nicola April 4, 2012 Cheap rivets? Still holding the ship together on the sea bed. I think sailing a massive lump of metal at full speed into the equivalent of a concrete building is more likely to be the problem..not sure any rivets could hold up to that. Reply Brian March 5, 2012 Most of those photos are not of Titanic – but of Olympic, which was the first of a trio built and therefore more important at the time of their building. Olympic had completely open Promenades – Titanic’s were partially enclosed. Reply Ed April 10, 2012 I think the enclosed promenade elements were added after launch, so the photos could be of the Titanic. Wasn’t the Olympic launched in white anyway? Reply Pierre April 14, 2012 What a marvellous collection of photos ! It’s like we where living in this period. Congratulations for gathering all those pictures. Reply Jsi April 17, 2012 Great photos – thanks! Btw, on the bow shot the name Titanic is handwritten on the photo. It was not painted on the ship. Reply Gordon June 27, 2012 As they’re fond of saying in Belfast: “She was alright when she left here!” Reply Bryan Caven September 4, 2012 Built by the Irish, sunk by the English! Reply Jim Hodge September 9, 2012 Have a look at this site – its colourised pictures of the Titanic and other ships. Some of the colourising work is excellent, and this is a whole new view of the Titanic.
