Traveling with the White Star Line, in 1911.

Looking back a year before Titanic, while under construction in the Harland and Wolff yards up in Belfast. My wife's family can make claim to part of Titanic's greater legacy, the White Star Line. Irving Davis, a clarientist with John Philip Sousa's Band traveled 2nd Class on the steamer S.S. Baltic in late December 1910.
