Hello there & welcome to the Titanic autograph & memorabilia site
It was through my passion and continued interest in this wonderful ship and the element of conspiracy concerning her sinking that drives my continued affection for all and everything Titanic. This Sentiment shows with many people of all ages all over the world, even though its 100 years after her sad passing in the Atlantic on that cold April night in 1912. A lot of people’s interest in Titanic arrived with the film of Titanic but mine started as a boy at junior school when the class were asked to make a model of a means of transport. It was around the time of the Apollo space flights and most of the class made their version of an Apollo space craft. My Action man fitted in mine! One of the other children in the class a lad called Steven Bates who was a bit of a strange character because he used to run to school from home with his arms opened out wide pretending he was an airplane (he made the engine noises too!). He was also slightly nervous and used to eat bits of paper handkerchiefs. I digress. Steven Bates decided to build his version of the Titanic ship and through that that I first got to know about this incredible ship and its amazing story. From its launch at Belfast its, near miss with the SS City of New York at Southampton. How about the names that have become synonymous with the ship Thomas Andrews, Charles Lightoller, Captain Edward Smith, the “unsinkable Molly Brown”, Bruce Ismay, The Marconi operator Jack Phillips, Milvina Dean, Edith Eileen Haisman (née Brown), so many stories each family have whether a survivor or a descendent. Moving forward to modern times the discovery of the wreck of the Titanic by Robert Ballard and the 1997 film Directed by James Cameron, starring Bernard Hill, Bill Paxton, Billy Zane, Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates, & Leonardo Di Caprio
Milvina Dean told us that she was “rediscovered” as a survivor after the Titanic film came out”. The film although based on facts was a fictitious romance but it introduced millions to the story of the Titanic.
