Titanic items in for sale

WITH all the recent hype of the new Titanic Centre, festivals and ceremonies, it is not that surprising that McAfee Auctions next sale in Ballycastle includes two pieces of Titanic interest in a two night sale this week.

The first is an enlarged copy of ‘The Mornings New York Times’, published just after the sinking of the Titanic and with the bold heading ‘Titanic Sinks Four Hours After Hitting Iceberg, 866 Rescued – 1250 Perish’ and the other an 85th anniversary print of the titled ‘Pride & Splendor on her Last Solo Speed Trial’.

The items are included in the two sales on Thursday and Friday with approximately 1,050 lots of antique and general furniture, collectables, paintings, jewellery, silver tools etc in the Ballycastle Sale Rooms at Ann Street.

Viewing commences on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 24-25 from 3.00pm-5.00pm and 7.00pm-8.30pm and each day of sale from 4.00pm.
