An internal view of Titanic

A rare view of Titanic's internal construction, 1910.

This exceptional photograph was taken around October 1910.  It preserves the only internal view we have of Titanic's hull under construction, enclosed by the lattice steelwork of the great overhead gantry.

Men can be seen working on the steel beams and hatchways of the upper decks.  Some of them have stopped work to pose for the camera, adding a human dimension to this compelling industrial image.
