The newest addition to our Carpathia Champagne Bar and Restaurant menu has been created in memory of one of history’s most remarkable women. Molly Brown’s Bar Bites are available for guests to enjoy alongside refreshing drinks in our stunning Liverpool rooftop bar and restaurant.
The origins of Molly Brown
Known affectionately as the “Unsinkable Molly Brown”, Margaret Tobin began life in humble origins as the daughter of two widowed Irish immigrants.
She was hardworking at grammar school and then in factories and department stores until she married in 1886 at the tender age of just 18.
After building herself a loving family Molly devoted time to early feminist movements. Starting with Colorado’s National American Women’s Suffrage Association, she also began serving in the local soup kitchens to the families of needy miners.
In 1893, J.J, Molly’s husband developed a method of mining gold and their fortune was found. This stroke of luck allowed the family to purchase properties. As a result of her new-found wealth, Molly had free time to devote herself to charities. Her time was spent working with women’s movements, children’s causes and helping to raise her brother’s three children after their mother had passed away.
Both before and after being a passenger on board RMS Titanic Molly Brown was a force to be reckoned with.
On board, Titanic
During the sinking of RMS Titanic, she encouraged women and children into lifeboats before being urged to get in one herself. Her passionate pleas to return to collect survivors from the sea were rejected by quartermaster Robert Hichens, for fear of the boat being dragged down or swamped.
What Molly did next
After RMS Titanic Molly Brown used her fame to bolster her profile in politics. Her efforts were recognised as she brought the causes she held so dearly to the attention of others.
Molly was the first women to run for office and with the help of another wealthy socialite, organised a conference on the rights of women. This event which drew crowds of other human rights activists together from across the globe.
During World War One Molly dedicated her efforts to helping rebuild areas damaged by war. She also spent time assisting French and American wounded soldiers in any way she could.
