Titanic: Thomas Andrews Shipbuilder

The Internet Archive has added a copy of "Thomas Andrews Shipbuilder" by Shan F. Bullock to its collection at www.archive.org/stream/thomasandrewsshi32166gut/32166-0.txt.

Andrews was the managing director and head of the draughting department for Harland and Wolff in Belfast, and was in charge of the plans for the RMS Titanic. He died on board the vessel on her maiden voyage.

If you had ancestors at Harland and Wolff, worth a read - at least one of my two times great grandfathers worked on the Titanic, so I've added this to my to-do list!
