Harland & Wolff Drawing Office, 1912Harland & Wolff Drawing Office, 1912

This photograph shows naval architects and draughtsmen working on ship designs in one of Harland & Wolff’s two Drawing Offices, where the plans for Olympic, Titanic and Britannic were prepared.  Their high barrel ceilings and large windows made maximum use of natural light. 

Both of the Drawing Offices have survived to the present day.  They are preserved at Queen’s Island, now part of Titanic Quarter.
