Displays - Large Case
In the large display, Allen Shirley has shared a personal collection featuring a tragedy that still has a hold on people’s hearts and minds over a century later, the Titantic. He’s been collecting historical papers and items for over 20 years, especially unique items that have many times been signed by the actual individuals involved. Being involved in historic preservation for over two decades, Mr. Shirley’s goal is to entertain and educate the public on history. With a miniature reproduction of the ocean liner, copies of the china used in the three classes of dining, actual newspapers featuring the tragedy, and a copy of “Rose’s necklace”, this is one display that it would be a tragedy to miss.
