Birth of a dream
Harland and Wolff Original Design Drawing for Titanic.
Lord Pirrie was a distant relative of Edward Harland and had started in the Harland & Wolff shipyard as a gentleman apprentice. By now though had risen through the ranks to become the Managing Director & Chairman.
Ismay meanwhile was the Director of the White Star Line shipping company, and by the end of that dinner party, he had agreed to build three super liners to be called Olympic, Titanic and Gigantic (later changed to Britannic).
