LUSITANIA Launch

LUSITANIA Launch

The fine and later tragic Cunarder taking to the water at John Brown's yard on 7th June 1906.
She was completed in 1907 and with MAURETANIA provided a luxurious way to cross the Atlantic.
Sadly of course after only 8 years of service she was torpedoed off the Old Head of Kinsale within sight of land in May 1915 and sank with the loss of over 1100 souls.

Yes, the old john Brown photos are quite something, especially the ones taken from their big Titan outfitting crane.
