On this day: the launch of the RMS Olympic

The RMS Olympic, sister-ship to the Titanic, was launched in Belfast, Ireland on the 20th of October, 1910.

As was common in the era of black and white photography, the hull of the ship was painted light grey so that the lines could be seen better when shown in pictures.
