    Default History: Titanic

    Follow us on Social Media








    The ill-fated White Star liner RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic. Take a look at the luxury the passengers saw when they hopped on board


    This grand staircase is a replica of the one from the Titanic. See another interior scene in the next photo.


    Plush carpets and fancy lighting greeted those walking the halls in the first-class section of the Titanic. See the Titanic start its maiden voyage next.


    The Titanic on her first and last voyage in 1912. After leaving Queenstown (now Cobh), Ireland, the ship struck an iceberg.


    Though billed as "unsinkable," the Titanic was no match for the icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland. News of the sensational wreck spread quickly.


    This boy holds a sign announcing the Titanic disaster of the day before. See another contemporary headline in the next photo.


    The front page of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of April 16, 1912, featured reports on the Titanic. The paper gives the death toll as 1302 and survivor count at 868. Later figures were 1517 dead and 706 survivors.


    One survivor, Laura Marie Cobb, penned a hand-written book about her experience in the Titanic disaster. See more Titanic artifacts in the next photos.


    This old 10 dollar bill is now on display in Titanic exhibitions.

    In 1985, using vehicles like the Mir 2 submersible that lights this scene, the Titanic wreckage was discovered. This shows the bow railing, which sits up on the anchor crane of the ship's foredeck.


    This 15-ton, 100-square-foot portion of the hull of the Titanic is on display. Learn more about staying alive during this kind of disaster in How to Survive a Shipwreck.
