Albion House White Star Building

Albion House White Star BuildingThe Albion House White Star Building. was designed by Richard Norman Shaw and J. Francis Doyle. Standing on the corner of James Street and The Strand, the red brick and white stone building was the original headquarters of the White Star Line and the registered home of the ill-fated ship the Titanic.

It was here where grief stricken relatives camped in the days after the disaster as they awaited the news of the fate of their family members. The staff of the White Star line were too afraid to leave the building after the disaster. So instead they decided to read the names of those who had died from a balcony.
