A Night to Remember - Titanic Departing Southampton

Francis Godolphin Osbourne Stuart (1843-1923)

Titanic Departing Southampton, 1912
Titanic steams away from Southampton on April 10, 1912. Her first port of call was Cherbourg in France, where a further 274 passengers went on board. As Titanic was too large to enter the tiny port of Cherbourg, the passengers were ferried to the liner on the White Star tenders Nomadic and Traffic, both of which had been specially built in Belfast for this purpose. Her next, and final, port of call was Queenstown (Cobh) in Ireland.
