This week was the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

More than 1,500 people died when the White Star Line vessel went down on its maiden trans-Atlantic journey in April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg.

Relatives of those who died gathered in Belfast this week, the city where the luxury liner was built, to mark the anniversary. But the Northern Irish capital is not the only place with links to the great ocean liner and its sinking.

Halifax, too, has a special link with that horrifying day in 1912.
