TITANIC’S CONNECTION TO LIVERPOOL
Even though Titanic never traveled to Liverpool She still had many ties to the city in England. Liverpool’s Albion House was built for the Ismay, Imrie and Company, which later became White Star Line. The building was headquarters for White Star Line during 1912, and therefore Titanic was registered in Liverpool.
Many of the tasks necessary to prepare for Titanic’s maiden voyage were conducted in Liverpool at White Star Line’s headquarters. One of these tasks was selecting Titanic’s officers. Charles Bartlett was given the position of White Star Line’s Marine Superintendent in Liverpool in early 1912 and headed this task along with others in preparation for Titanic’s maiden voyage. Along with many officers, other various crewmembers on Titaniccame from Liverpool.
