Titanic Trivia: Built by Harland & Wolff shipyard, in Belfast, construction of the behemoth ocean liner began on September 17, 1908, and was completed on April 2, 1912, only 10 days before the start of her maiden voyage. Advertised as "unsinkable" the world waited with great anticipation for her initial voyage and of the estimated 2,224 passengers onboard the liner among them were some of the wealthiest people in the world, including Benjamin Guggenheim, John Jacob Astor IV, Isidor Straus, and Margaret "Molly" Brown, to name but a few. The Titanic sank in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, after she collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is estimated that some 1,500 souls perished in this horrible disaster including Thomas Andrews, the ships architect, and her Captain Edward Smith also went down with the ship. It was supposed to be Captain Smith's last voyage before retiring.
