Titanic leaving Belfast

Titanic was the ultimate showcase for what British industry could produce. Belfast had become a world centre for the construction of ships and was rightly proud of the production of this beautiful ship. Her sinking on her maiden voyage was incredibly poignant for all concerned. Interestingly, the Nazis made a film about the sinking of the Titanic in the 1943 in order to illustrate the decadence that was undermining the moral superiority of the British Empire.
