Titanic launch photos

A private photo album of 116 images, including 13 taken of the launching of the Titanic, is now on public display for the first time at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in the UK. The photo album, long in private hands, was originally the property of the director of the Harland & Wolff shipyard which built the liner, John W. Kempster. Read more about it here and see a couple cool images from the album http://yellowpages.com/  The museum's information rich website includes some nice photos of the three big liners the shipyard built, the Titanic, Britannic and Olympic.
