White Star Line-- Part 1

From Wikipedia.

Since I have been doing several blog entries of late on the Titanic, I might as well talk about the company that owned the big ship.

The official name of the company was the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company, or White Star Line of Boston Packet, more commonly known simply as the White Star Line.

The company was a prominent British shipping endeavor, known for its ground-breaking vessel, the Oceanic in 1870, the RMS Titanic and the World War I loss of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic.  Their ships generally ended with the letters "ic."
