#TitanicsTender - The tender, SS Nomadic built alongside Titanic at Harland and Wolff shipyards, carried first and second-class passengers from Cherbourg onto the liner as she embarked on its maiden voyage.

According to Belfast Live, the SS Nomadic is being taken over by Titanic Belfast more than a century after it ferried passengers to the ill-fated liner.

The historic vessel, often referred to as 'Titanic's little sister', is the last remaining White Star ship. It is also the biggest artefact in the world with links to the famous liner.

The tender, built alongside Titanic at Harland and Wolff shipyards, carried first and second-class passengers from Cherbourg onto the liner as she embarked on its maiden voyage.

Built in 1911, it has enjoyed a colourful history. It served in both world wars and has also been used as a floating restaurant, a nightclub and a casino.
