“A Walking Tour of Titanic”

12 April 2022

Photo of the RMS Titanic110 years ago, the world was shook as the largest and grandest ocean liner of its day sank on its maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg. Capturing the imagination of millions for over a century, get an inside look at R.M.S. Titanic as never seen before. Painstakingly recreated in a digital format by the “Titanic Honor and Glory” group, you will get to see the opulent and lavishly appointed rooms and spaces of First and Second class, as well as a look into 3rd class and crew accommodations. Reconstructed down to the screws and light switches, walk the decks of the doomed liner, just as she was in 1912.

Tyler Strzałkowski, a forth generation resident of Scotch Plains will present this insightful program. Tyler is a graduate of the local High School and has carried an interest of history with him since he was young, his particular area of interest being Oceanic and Maritime history. An active member of the Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood, he is often involved with local activities, and is always working to further his knowledge of all things bygone and antiquated. Going on to further his education, he has taken to studying welding at the Lincoln Tech Trade School.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26th at the Shady Rest Golf and Country Club, 820 Jerusalem Road (at the corner of Plainfield Avenue) in Scotch Plains. This upcoming meeting is free and all are welcome. Refreshments and fellowship will follow the presentation.
