Book reviews & comments

'Titanic Port' tracks the story of Belfast Harbour, from and insignificant 17th century landing place in a muddy inlet, into a modern, world-class seaport mirroring the development of Belfast and its people.

Titanic Port is a timeless story that relates the triumphs as well as the tragedies of the past: it remains a challenge and inspiration in the world of the 21st century.

The Belfast Harbour Board is proud of this unique publication; we believe that it is an important and timely addition to the significant story of the development of the Port and the City of Belfast.
