Online auction for 240 Titanic artifacts

This schematic illustration obtained April 3, 2014, courtesy of RR Auction shows a rare original cross-section and plan labeled “S. S. ‘Titanic,’” in the lower left corner and marked “No. 8” in the upper right corner, 30″ x 26″, drawn to a scale of 1/32 inches to one foot, and rubber stamped by Harland and Wolff, with a handwritten date within the stamp of May 1, 1912, just one day before the opening statements were given at the British enquiry, at which this plan was used. RR Auction will feature the Titanic’s original building plans that include hand-drawn notations, used during the official British enquiry into the most devastating maritime tragedy in history in its upcoming Titanic themed auction, later this month. This piece was discovered at the old Cunard Line office, which merged with White Star Line in 1934. Originally sold by Onslow’s in London, on April 15, 1987, the plan then went on display at the Ulster Museum in Belfast. It was then offered at auction by Henry Aldridge & Son, at which time it became a part of a private collection. It has since been on display at the Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri.
