Titanic Series No8. Her only Landmark by 

Thompson Drydock, Harland & Wolff, Queens Island, Belfast.

The Thompson Dry dock was officially opened on Saturday 1st April 1911 it was the dock in which The Titanic was fitted out, the first ship to enter the dry dock was The Olympic sister ship to the Titanic. The operation to maneuver the Olympic into the dock began at 10 am the tugs Hercules and Jackal completed the job by 11.35.

The dry dock served the shipyard well surviving into the latter years of the 1980’s during which time it must have seen hundreds if not thousands of ships settle on its keel blocks to undergo fit out or repair, especially during the years of the Second World War when Harland and Wolff produced an average of one ship a week.

Exposure: 1/125sec
f-stop: f/9
ISO: 200
Lens: Sigma 10mm Fisheye Lens.
