DESCRIPTION -- This item is a rare find and from the Cunard White Start Line vessel the RMS Laurentic. It is a passenger list for a cruise sailing from Liverpool and dated Saturday August 11th 1934. The item is in good/fair contention.

CONDITION -- Fair

HISTORY -- The second SS Laurentic was an 18,724-ton ocean liner built in 1927 by Harland and Wolff, Belfast, for the White Star Line.[1] She served the White Star Line from 1927 to 1936, undergoing two collisions during her career. The ship was then transformed into an auxiliary cruiser for the Royal Navy in the Second World War. The Laurentic was torpedoed by the German submarine U-99 on 3 November 1940 off Bloody Foreland, County Donegal, Ireland, but she remained afloat. But after two more torpedoes hit her, she sank with the loss of 49 lives. This was the second ship of the company to have worn the name. The first, commissioned in 1909, suffered the same fate during the First World.

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.

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.
