      Titanic launched and sank in 1912. I'd say it's a pretty safe bet this photo was taken April 1912.

      My former landlord is kin to the capton of Titanic,remarkably he looks just like the guy who played the capton on the movie.I found this to be strange, I know Hollywood is good with thier makeup artists but ,this was uncanny to say the least! I would like anyone with personal knowledge, or study ,regarding the Tinanic, to please contact me. My adoptive parents lived in this time,and I heard alot that was not in the "news".My brother,also was "at" The Philidelphia Experiment". while he served in the Navy. I am surrounded by these type of events, rather by "coiencidence",or fact. I believe this to be relavent,and would like to add to the facts of what I have.Also,anything on; "the "Mary Celeste",and the "CoronaQueen". I have a theory on this,as the "portals" are opening in various locations around the planet,and I'm comparing data.I am not a science scholar, but ,love it! I lived with a man who did his own take on the triangle,and it all fits!Your help would be very appreciated. Jb @

      These are incredible.

      There's a video Canadian Tourism has put together documenting the Titanic and its unique historical ties to Newfoundland. It's worth a look!

      A remarkable photo. I can only imagine the trauma, loss, sadness, anger, and fear these survivors must have been experiencing. I have been haunted by the Titanic disaster for over 10 years, since I saw James Cameron's film, and have become fascinated by the history surrounding this infamous tragedy. Thank you for sharing this photo!

      The title of the ship was SS Carpathia (steam ship) as compared with RMS Titanic (Royal Mail Ship). The story that the SS Carpathia was given the title of RMS some time well after the rescue operation is very sketchy. Ship enthusiasts generally get quite annoyed when the proper designations are left off or listed incorrectly.
