Titanic 9:20 PM 14 April 1912


After spending several minutes on the bridge with Second Officer Lightoller, Captain Smith goes to his private chart room in his quarters to lay down on the sofa in his uniform. Captain Smith’s last words to Lightoller:

“If it becomes at all doubtful let me know at once. I shall be just inside.”

Ten minutes later Lightoller sends word to the crow’s nest for the lookouts to keep a sharp lookout for ice, particularly small ice and growlers.

It is only a few seconds long, but this is Titanic while under construction in Belfast, Ireland. All other motion picture film footage you will see is either the Olympic or this same film footage of Titanic.
