This is the admittance ticket I received on a tour of the Titanic Experience in Cobh, County Cork. It’s a copy of the original that was issued to twenty-two year old Katherine Buckley, who drowned during the ship’s tragic sinking. Even though she died all those years ago, she is remembered every time someone is given her ticket, when paying for the guided tour. In a way, she is forever in the ‘now’ and it’s like a memorial to Katherine and those who were the last passengers to board Titanic in Cobh (Queenstown) just before the maiden transatlantic voyage.
If you would like to find out more about Katherine here’s a link.
