Incredibly rare illustrations and photos of the opulent surroundings of the Titanic have come to light in two brochures which describe the doomed ship as 'practically unsinkable.'<br />
<br />
The colour drawings depict the plush accommodation and facilities that first and second class passengers enjoyed on the luxury liner.<br />
<br />
They offer rare glimpses of the promenade deck, reading room, swimming baths, smoking room, main staircase, the Turkish bath, state room and parlour suit accommodation, dining room and reception room.<br />
<br />
Alongside the images there is an equally scarce copy of the sailing schedule for the doomed ship, highlighting its 'lost' trans-Atlantic service.<br />
<br />
The itinerary shows the Titanic would have gone on to make four trips from Southampton to New York between April to July 1912 had it not sunk on its maiden voyage with the loss of 1,522 lives.<br />
<br />
The two brochures and sailing schedule have now been put up for sale 105 years after the tragedy. They have a pre-sale estimate of a combined £20,000.
