RMS TITANIC – A Day to Remember
Fine Art Print
Second of a trio, Titanic was one of the most elegant ocean liners built during the “golden era” of sea travel. Her brief builders’ trials took place on April 2, 1912 with tugs arriving around 6 am to ease Titanic out to a point in Belfast Lough where the massive liner could proceed under her own power for the first time. She then underwent rigorous tests within the enclosed waters of the Lough until, in the early afternoon, she proceeded into the open Irish Sea for running trials. Steaming south for two hours brought her within
view of the Mourne Mountains and St. John’s Point lighthouse, County Down. Here
Titanic carried out a broad 180-degree turn before heading back to Belfast to receive her Board of Trade passenger certificate, “…good for one year from today, 2-4-12” and handing her over to her owners. Around 8 pm, the liner left for Southampton and, in darkness, bade farewell to the coastline she would never see again.
