A bit about the piece
This is a rare piece – Original Titanic site navigation plans. They were found in a Harland and Wolff tradesman’s box, passed down to a descendent from Robert Falconer Keith. Robert Falconer was the man who launched the Titanic.
The box sat for many decades unopened and emerged during a clear-out. In amongst old tools was the Titanic plans, with the lovely patina from daily use by tradesmen.These were plans issued to the workers on the Titanic so they could find their way around the ship while they were working on it.
