The Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool

A selection of Titanic related photos from the Merseyside Maritime Museum; note that there are no photos of the Ismay family silver or the builder's model as I felt that these have probably suffered from over-exposure. I focussed on the lesser known artefacts.

I took this photo of an information board for the simple reason that its a lovely picture of Ismay and his wife; one I had never seen before.

A casting for one of the Titanic's bells. The base is nearly two feet in diameter.
