Boiler Room

Born in 1907 the fated vessel Titanic carved the waves for a short time. The biggest liner ever to be built in the world she was a beautiful creature to behold.

Sweeping staircases and grand rooms filled with marvellous things greeted first class guests who hardly ever thought of life below. Most never thought to peek behind the curtain of this greatest show.

Down, down, down beneath all the people eating, sleeping, laughing and living on the icy Atlantic brine, a secret world buzzed.

The Boiler Room. Over a hundred men worked for twenty four hours a day in shifts, shovelling black coal for the four massive smoke stacks imposing as the ship itself. Unknown, beneath it all.
