Documenting history: Titanic

100 years ago today RMS Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage from the port of Southampton.  At the time it was the largest ship afloat.  The Titanic took just over two years to build in Belfast and carried over 2000 passengers.  Owned by White Star Line, the Titanic became one of the most famous ships of all time.
