100 years ago: Shocking news of Titanic disaster reaches Lawrence

An extract from a White Star Line publicity brochure produced in 1910 for the twin ships Olympic and Titanic which states ??these two wonderful vessels are designed to be unsinkable. Some sources state that this wording was used on an advertising flyer while others point to an illustrated brochure. The White Star Line insist that the words used in the publicity brochure (shown right) only point to Titanic's being designed to be unsinkable, not that it was claimed to be unsinkable.

On June 1, 1911, the Irish News and Belfast Morning News contained a report on the launching of Titanic's hull. The article described the system of watertight compartments and electronic watertight doors and concluded that Titanic was practically unsinkable.

In 1911, Shipbuilder magazine published an article on the White Star Line's sister ships Titanic and Olympic. The article described the construction of the ship and concluded that Titanic was practically unsinkable.

100 years ago: Shocking news of Titanic disaster reaches Lawrence

"The shipbuilders Harland and Wolff insist that the Titanic was never advertised as an unsinkable ship. They claim that the 'unsinkable' myth was the result of people's interpretations of articles in the Irish News and the Shipbuilder magazine that said she was "practically unsinkable". They also claim that the myth grew after the disaster.
Yet, when the New York office of the White Star Line was informed that Titanic was in trouble, White Star Line Vice President P.A.S. Franklin announced " We place absolute confidence in the Titanic. We believe the boat is unsinkable." By the time Franklin spoke those words Titanic was at the bottom of the ocean"
look I can copy and paste too
we are talking semantics here.
Just like when something is taken out of context in today's media.

The loss of life is but one of the reasons Titanic is remembered as one of the greatest maritime disasters. Her being promoted as "unsinkable" and "the greatest ship ever made". The rich and famous on board. And to add a little "today" into it. The media hype that was given the ship at the time.

I find this very interesting. Nice to see how this international event was covered locally

"back in my day.."
"i cant stand reading from..."
"everyone should be reading more books..."
