Titanic Images - The Shipbuilder - 2: Harland & Wolff

The builders of the Olympic and Titanic, the celebrated firm of Harland & Wolff, Limited, have had unrivalled experience in the construction of large passenger vessels, and the new White Star liners but add another triumph to the many which they have to their credit.

Unlike many shipbuilding firms, Messrs. Harland & Wolff may be termed builders in the most complete sense of the word. As in the case of all vessels built by them, not only have they constructed the hulls of the Olympic and Titanic, but also their propelling machinery, while much of the outfit usually supplied by sub-contractors for ships built in other yards has been manufactured in their own works.
