19 items

The Titanic was constructed at the Queens Island shipyard of Harland & Wolff. The yard began under the management of Robert Hickson & Co., in 1853. The following year Mr Edward James Harland became manager. In 1859 Hickson retired, and Harland, with the financial backing of G. C. Schwabe, of Liverpool, acquired the yard on his own account. The drawing office was placed in charge of Mr. G. W. Wolff, who later became a partner in the business the yard was renamed Harland & Wolff in 1862. Harland & Wolff, developed a close and profitable association with the White Star line in particular under their respective chairmen Lord Pirrie and Thomas Henry Ismay.
