Fitting out Titanic

Titanic fitting-out at the deepwater wharf early in 1912Titanic fitting-out at the deepwater wharf early in 1912.

Even without her fourth ‘dummy’ funnel, added to maintain the ship’s elegant lines, Titanic dominates this industrial landscape.

Harland & Wolff's huge floating crane, for lifting equipment on board, is berthed between the ship and the wharf.  Two long gangways connect the ship to the shore. 

If you look closely, you’ll see the workers' ‘heads’ or lavatories, fitted clear of Titanic’s bow on the left hand side of the photograph.
