Description

Author and historian, Mark Chirnside will give a presentation on the three iconic Olympic Class Ships at PRONI on 9 September at 7:30pm.

The Belfast Titanic Society and PRONI would like to invite you to their third annual lecture.
Building the largest ships in the world wasn’t simply a question of the shipbuilding process itself. There were all sorts of other practical challenges to consider, including financing them, insuring them, expanding the port and docking facilities to operate and maintain them, and powering them across the North Atlantic.

Mark Chirnside explores a few of the many financial, technical and engineering issues that confronted the White Star Line as they planned Olympic, Titanic and Britannic and explains how they overcame them.
