HISTORY – Adriatic was built in 1907 by Harland and Wolff, Belfast, for the White Star Line. She one of the original "Big Four." (Cedric, Celtic, Baltic, Adriatic) A new class of liners built between 1901 and 1907. She was considered fast for 1907, crossing the Atlantic in nine days, but that record would not last long when the Cunarders Mauritania and Lusitania would arrive on the scene. Adriatic was the first ship to have a swimming pool, or "swimming bath" as they were called. Tragedy struck Adriatic on August 11, 1922. While at sea, there was an explosion in one of her coal bunkers killing five crew and injuring four. Adriatic went through a series of refits changing the numbers of accommodations and the classes they were in. Numerous mechanical problems plagued the ship in the the early 30's putting it out of service. It got to the point where Adriatic was costing more money than it was making. When the Cunard - White Star merger occurred in 1934, it was the first to go. She was scrapped in Japan in 1935.

DESCRIPTION – White Star Line item collection – This item is a two page set of shore excursion details for the White Star Line vessel The Homeric. It is dated 1934 and in a good condition.

CONDITION -- Good

HISTORY – The SS Homeric was one of the three German war reparations ships which White Star acquired in the early 1920's. Launched at the F. Schihau yard in Danzig in 1913 as Norddeutscher Lloyd's Columbus, the ship was laid up, unfinished, for the duration of World War I. Ceded to Britain in 1919 and purchased by White Star in 1920. She arrived in England in January 1922 and was given the name Homeric, which White Star had previously assigned to a 33,000 ton ship which was never built due to the War. Her sister ship was laid down as the Hindenburg, and was completed in 1922. It it was then decided to name that ship Columbus instead of Hindenburg.

BOOK THE TITANIC – THE FULL STORY OF A TRAGEDY BY MICHAEL DAVIE

BOOK THE TITANIC – THE FULL STORY OF A TRAGEDY BY MICHAEL DAVIE

DESCRIPTION – White Star Line item collection : One of the best books ever written about the disaster that befell the Titanic. Written by Michael Davie and contains over 240 pages. (click on the picture to see some pictures from inside the book)

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY – The Titanic disaster isn't what ended the White Star Line, but it pretty much put an end to White Star Line Chairman, J. Bruce Ismay. Ismay was highly ridiculed by both the press and the public for surviving the disaster. The press felt Ismay, being president of the White Star Line, should have gone down with the ship as Captain Smith did. One newspaper even dubbed him "J. (Brute) Ismay." Several 1912 newspapers suggested (as some recent motion pictures have) that Ismay overrode Captain Smith's orders enroute, and ordered full speed, knowing there was ice in the area in an attempt to beat the Olympic's Atlantic crossing record. There is no hard evidence however, to support this theory. Both the U.S. and the British Inquiries following the disaster concluded that Ismay's remaining behind when spaces were open at the particular lifeboat he was helping load, would have just added another death to the list. He was exonerated by both investigations.
