Part III:  Lower Broadway


1 Broadway, now a Citibank, was formerly owned by the International Mercantile Marine Company.  It was purchased by the IMM in 1920-21, so is post-Titanic but is definitely a pertinant site.  There are two side doors depicting "First Class" and "Cabin Class" entrances.  Along this sidewalk now is a major bus stop so it was difficult to get these photos during rush hour when I was there.

White Star Line Building 9 Broadway, now a Radio Shack, was the site of the White Star Line.  Passengers would have purchased tickets here for Titanic's return voyage on April 20, 1912.

Now a post office, the Cunard Line building (1919) is at 25 Broadway.  It was the Carpathia's parent company.  Cunard later merged with WSL with the former being the senior partner.
