"Extremely well done and fascinating to look through, this box of documents is engrossing. It is a window into not just Titanic but the era. A person could easily spend several hours absorbing all of these documents."

— Lee Wright | Founder | The History List | History Camp | The Pursuit of History

          Excellent collection

          I enjoyed receiving your Titanic collection, and it’s like a trip back in time viewing all of the documents from its construction and voyage to the tragic memorial service afterwards. Future generations need to view things like this in order to understand what truly happened. I only wish there had been more documents and photos included. A very nice collection for any Titanic historian.

          I bought this for my 8 year old great grandson,who is obsessed with the Titantic. I saw a video of him opening up the package , and shouted in joy," OH, White Star Line !!!!" . He was so enthused to see everything that was included in that package. I remember that enthusiasm about the Titantic at his age as well. My great grandfather had sold books about it ,door to door, a year after its sinking.
