Historic decor prints of the British ocean liner, RMS Lustania

The Lusitania, which was owned by the Cunard Line, was built to compete for the highly lucrative transatlantic passenger trade. Construction began in 1904 and the liner was completed in 1907, at which time it was the largest ship in the world, measuring some 787 feet (240 metres) in length and weighing approximately 31,550 tons.  It was sunk in 1915 on the return leg of its 101st roundtrip voyage across the Atlantic when it was torpedoed without warning by a German submarine off the south coast of Ireland.
