A unique collection of artefacts and photographs of the legendary doomed ‘unsinkable’ liner Titanic is to go on show in the county this summer.
Titanic In Photographs is an international exhibition which is touring the world - taking in venues in the US and South Africa. And one of only two venues in the UK - and the only one in Kent - will be at Tunbridge Wells’ Royal Victoria Place shopping centre.
Based on the best-selling book of the same name by maritime historians Daniel Klistoner and Steve Hall, the gallery-style exhibition takes the visitor back to relive the magic of what was then the world’s largest and most luxurious cross-Atlantic liner and the excitement generated by its launch.
But it also highlights the tragedy that occured on its debut crossing when, in April 1912, it hit an iceberg and sunk resulting in the death of more than 1,500 passengers.
Images include those from passengers, the professional photographer of the ship’s builders, Harland & Wolff, Robert Welch as well as press photographers and passengers onboard the Carpathia - the ship that came to rescue those who survived the icy waters.
