Photographer's Note

This is the port area of Cobh Ireland. The shot was taken from the balcony of our cabin on the Jewel of the Seas as well pulled out of Cobh.
The cathedral on the hill behind the buildings is St. Coleman's. In 1868, when the Cathedral was begun, Cobh or Queenstown as it was then called, was a relatively prosperous place. This was because it was Ireland's principal emigration outlet. More than five million people emigrated from Ireland in the nineteenth century - mainly to the United States, Australia and Canada and a large proportion of them left from Queenstown.
The Titanic made it's final stop at this dock in Cobh.
