In 1871 a bright new star appeared on the Liverpool shipping scene. Like a phoenix, the White Star Line grew out of the ashes of a bankrupt sailing ship line to become the fastest-growing and most famous of all shipping companies. Their first ships set a new standard for transatlantic travel, a standard that was to remain for as long as the company existed. The White Star Line never had the fastest ships, but theirs were the most luxurious. From Oceanic of 1871 to Georgic of 1932, there have been many ground-breaking White Star ships. The company's most famous are undoubtedly the Titanic, Olympic and Britannic, but the other seventy or so ships of the line also helped the White Star become the most famous line of all time.
