Titanic Newspaper Clippings

The Titanic, along with her sister ship the Olympic, were modern marvels even before they were completed. White Star Line wasted no time in letting the world know that they were building the largest steamers in the world.

All these advertisements are from the Cornishman & Cornish Telegraph newspaper located in the United Kingdom. The longer two are very similar but if you look closely the typeset is different. The one to the left is dated August 13, 1910 and the other (below) a few days later. Each advertise "The Largest Steamers In The World Building."

The smaller clipping on the lower left is dated June 24, 1911, which is just a few weeks after the launching of Titanic on May 31st.
