Storia illustrata dell’SS Nomadic nave a vapore della White Star Line dal suo varo nel 1911 attraverso tutta la sua lunga carriera operativa sino ai giorni nostri.

---

SS Nomadic was commissioned by White Star Line to serve Olympic class liners RMS Olympic, Titanic and Britannic when calling in Cherbourg. Built in Belfast alongside Titanic’s construction site, she was made with the same steel, built by the same workers and decorated by the same craftsmen. Because her duties were to serve first and second class passengers, she was fitted out far more luxuriously than other tenders of that time and she was considered by the White Star Line as a window into the sumptuous new transatlantic liners. The little tender has a tremendous story, surviving both world wars, escaping destruction many times, and now restored to her former glory as a tourist attraction in Belfast.
