Video: New album of photographs shows life aboard Titanic to be almost Downton Abbey at sea

Previously unpublished photographs of the launch of the Titanic have gone on display today at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra. The album includes an image of the famous vessel going down the slipway in the Belfast shipyard where it was constructed, with excited spectators chasing behind. William Blair, a human history expert, said: "The ship seems to be a perfect mirror reflection of society, you learn the class distinctions, the social codes of that era. It is almost Downton Abbey at sea." Credit: Belfast Telegraph
