White Star Line Collection

The Paul Louden-Brown White Star Line Collection was acquired in 2010. This remarkable collection of over 7000 items has been assembled by one of the world’s foremost authorities on the White Star Line. It illustrates the context of Titanic through the history of its parent company. Established in 1869 White Star Line became one of the most prestigious shipping companies of the 19th and 20th centuries. Almost all of White Star’s ships were built at Harland & Wolff’s shipyard in Belfast.
