PRLog (Press Release) – Maryport was the home town of Thomas Henry Ismay, founder of the White Star Line, the shipping comany which owned Olympic, Titanic and Britannic.
We can see these three great ships rise again this month, in the form of three superb 1/150 scale models built of steel and timber.
The event is being organised by Clifford Ismay and Steven Fox on behalf of 'Maryport Maritime Heritage' a voluntary group set up to help save the town's Maritime Museum from closure. Amongst those expecting to be in attendance are several dignitaries of Maryport and Allerdale as well as various members of Titanic organisations.
Cliff Ismay is the great nephew of J Bruce Ismay, offering talks to schools groups and events throguout the UK. Exhibitions can also be arranged featuring a unique collection of steel hulled models of Olympic, Titanic and Britannic.
