Alongside at Berth 44

Titanic at Southampton, April 1912.

This image shows Titanic at Berth No 44, White Star Dock, Southampton, possibly on Easter Sunday, 7 April 1912.  During the week she lay in Southampton, large quantities of stores, including glassware, crockery and cutlery, were brought on board the ship.  As well as a huge supply of fresh food and water, Titanic’s provisions included 15,000 bottles of beer and 1000 bottles of wine.

Finishing work continued on board the ship too.  Carpets were fitted, paintwork was completed, curtains were hung and furniture was arranged as part of the huge effort to get Titanic ready for her maiden voyage.
