An incredibly rare poster advertising the return voyage of the Titanic has come to light.<br />
<br />
The poignant poster promoted the New York to Southampton trip that never happened.<br />
<br />
The red, white and blue adverts, that heralded the 'Queen of the Ocean's first sailing', were put up all over lower Manhattan in the spring of 1912.<br />
<br />
But they were ripped down and destroyed by White Star Line in the wake of the tragedy in which 1,522 people died after the Titanic hit an iceberg.
