A rare sight, taken by the Bain news service, shows the ill fated Titanic, along with her White Star Line sister ship The Olympic. These Olympic-class sister ships, Shown here under construction at Harland and Wolff shipyard in Northern Island, were designed to compete with the Lusitania. Built by J.P Morgan's International Mercantile Marine Company, they were intended to be the largest, most luxurious ships ever to operate the Atlantic routes.
