RMS Titanic[]

RMS Olympic arriving in Queenstown

On April 11th, 1912, at 11:30 A.M., RMS Titanic dropped anchor in Queenstown. Tenders PS Ireland and PS America were waiting in the dock to transport 123 passengers out to board - 63 men and 60 women, for many of whom Queenstown was the gateway to a great new world. Several of the crème de la crème passengers had boarded at Cherbourg, therefore passengers boarding at Queenstown consisted of only 3 First Class, 7 Second Class, and 113 Third Class ticket-holders.

This is the pier where the Queenstown passengers boarded tenders.

Some people who boarded Titanic in Southampton left here, with the most famous one being Francis Browne, a person that was most famous for photographs he made while being aboard.
