Description

This menu for lunch on the 14th. April 1912 is the day before the ship sank (15th. April 1912). The Titanic was considered the largest ship afloat at the time and was built in the Harland and Wolff Shipyard in Belfast. The ship left Southampton (England) on the 10th. of April. On the 14th. April, 1912 four days into the crossing and about 375 miles south of Newfoundland, she hit an iceberg at 11.40pm ship's time. By 2.20am the ship foundered and broke apart with about 1000 people still on board (these were mostly men as the protocol of women and children first had been followed). More than 1500 died out of a total number of 2,224 passengers and crew.
