I live in Crosby, Merseyside, a suburb to the north of Liverpool. It is remarkable that at one time or another, the captains of the Titanic, Lusitania, Empress of Ireland and Britannic all lived within a few minutes walking-distance of each others' homes! Bruce Ismay was born and brought up in the town! I hope you find this of interest and would welcome any comments/corrections .

There are several towns with some claim to being 'Titanic Town' and I'm agreeing with James here. Belfast was her birthplace, after all. (This was also a title put to good use for Mary Costello's autiobiographical novel about growing up in 1970s Belfast too.)

Thanks for the link, Rod. Will check it out.

Kyrila,

I saw that movie a few years ago. It gave you a real sense of what has gone on in Belfast all these years.

Best regards,

Jason
