Subject: RE: Origins: Folk/Blues Songs: The Titanic Disaster
Sorry Boys,

Yer both completely wrong: We've already traditional Irish songs in hand, the lyrics of which subject the planned construction, & the actual building of the Titanic at the Harland & Wolff ship yard in Belfast around 1910, along with her Sister ship of the time, the Olympic.Other songs of the sea, originating from Liverpool: the Titanic's registered Port, & dating around 1910, tell about the building of the largest, moveable, man made construction to be built anywhere in the world: a fact still standing true till this day!

Irish Immigration songs (all traditional) are also in archive, which refer to the Irish Immigration to The Americas, the Titanic's sailing from Queenstown, & the lamented loss of life of those who boarded her in Queenstown, & who subsequently lost their lives off Newfoundland, when the ship struck the iceberg.
