Quotes

...Its engraving is signed off: 'From the Survivors of the Titanic'. Photograph: RR Auction "Unsinkable Molly Brown presents the cup to Captain Rostron. When the ship struck the iceberg, Brown started loading people onto lifeboats just as Rostron received a distress signal and set the Carpathia on course for the Titanic – more than 700 passengers were rescued. Photograph: RR Auction A volt meter belonging to yard worker Thomas McCauley, used in the construction of the Titanic at Harland & Wolff shipyard. Photograph: RR Auction A knife and spoon once used in the management offices of Harland and Wolff. Photograph: RR Auction A steel rivet head taken from the same shipyard by a worker as a souvenir. The head was kept private for years, as its original owner felt a deep sense of shame and grief over the tragedy. Photograph: RR Auction A delicate cobalt blue demitasse cup and saucer destined for the first class à la carte restaurant aboard the Titanic. Photograph: RR Auction A letter written home by one of the ship's Turkish bath attendants, Leonard Taylor, to his parents in Blackpool. Taylor, 18, was paid £4 a week. Photograph: RR Auction The original cross-section and building plans for RMS Titanic, rubber stamped by Harland and Wolff. The plans were used during the inquiry into how the largest passenger ship of its day sank to the bottom of the Atlantic. Photograph: RR Auction The plan's most notable feature is the hand-drawn gash in the side of the ship's sixth boiler (bottom left) where the iceberg hit — the location of this strike allowed water to enter the ship right at the point at which she could no longer stay afloat. Photograph: RR Auction A rare bronze flag plaque from a Titanic lifeboat, accompanied by the travel receipt of Istivan Osatai, who removed the plaque, proving he was a passenger on the Carpathia on the voyage that rescued the Titanic’s survivors. Photograph: RR Auction"
He added: "I am very comfortable – getting good food & a good bunk, my wages are low but I will let you know all later as I want to catch the Queenstown mail, I am only writing to let you know I am all right. I will write next week sending full particulars about my none too good job." Taylor never did – his body was never recovered, and the letter was kept carefully for more than a century in its very rare White Star envelope
The minister said it "raised the issue of the need for better apprenticeships and youth training so we have a skilled workforce ready to take advantage of these opportunities"
...Addressing delegates at the launch event held in Titanic Belfast, the Minister said: "Developing the skills of our current and future workforce will be essential if we are to continue to grow the ICT sector and ultimately achieve our economic aspirations. This sector is vitally important to the Northern Ireland economy as it continues to provide an increasing contribution to our gross value added and offering wages which are significantly above the private sector average."
