Sitting around a diningroom table in 1907, the owners of the
White Star Line discussed their competition to the newly built Cunard
liners, Lusitania and Mauretania. From that smokefilled room
came the first designs of three White Star superliners. Olympic and
Titanic were to be built at Harland & Wolffs yard in Belfast,
while the third ship was to follow after construction had been completed
on the first pair of sisters.
The only ship to make a return passenger voyage was Olympic, and she
was always overshadowed by her younger sisters. For the first time,
here is the definitive story of Titanics sister, RMS Olympic.
