Lord-Macquitty Collection

This popular collection includes original letters from survivors: both passengers and crew (see LMQ/7). Also featured are copies of the second class dinner menu (LMQ/1/12/2, issued as postcard souvenirs) and much contemporary publicity material concerning the ship itself such as deck plans, drawings and White Star brochures, all providing a view of the great size and splendour of this luxuriously appointed vessel (LMQ/1/9). Also present are 12 fascinating original photographs, showing TITANIC survivors in the lifeboats approaching the SS CARPATHIA at about 8 am on 15 April 1912. They are the only known photographs to show survivors being picked up from the sea (LMQ/1/12/1/1-12).
