While going through some old papers this morning, I found these photographs I took in Cobh Ireland around 1996. Cobh is the former Queenstown. The brick building is the former White Star Line ticket office.
The Titanic stopped here on April 11, 1912 to pick up mail (RMS Titanic = Royal Mail Ship Titanic) and it's last 123 passengers.
The ship left this port bound for New York.
This is the very last land that the Titanic and most of the people aboard ever saw.
