Titanic Poster Sells for £69,000
An unnamed American bought the rare lithographic picture of the ill-fated Titanic and her sister ship the RMS Olympic Photo: SWNS
The 30x40 inch promotional poster was based on a painting by artist Montague Black showing the doomed liner and its sister ship Olympic passing each other at sea.
The 45,000 ton Olympic can be seen in the foreground with Titanic heading for the horizon in the distance. The poster was commissioned by White Star Line before Titanic struck and iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912, killing 1,520 people.
