1911: Invite to the launch of the Titanic

“Shipyard worker’s ticket for the launch of Titanic, 31 May 1911.

“This ticket was issued to Mr David Moneypenny, a Harland & Wolff painter who worked on Titanic’s first-class accommodation. The creases in the ticket suggest it was folded and kept in his pocket.”
