1. Being Eaten Away

This is a real-life photo of the ship as it is today. The ship lay undiscovered for 70 years because no boat could survive the pressure that far down into the ocean. Then new technology allowed people to explore and take photos. It shows a  bacteria which thrives in extreme conditions eating away at the shipwreck.

2. A Digital Reconstruction

This is a digital reconstruction of the Titanic ship. After the ship had been able to be discovered, it led to the realisation that it had broken in half before sinking. With this reconstruction, it allows us to see exactly where the ship snapped in two.

3. The Immediate News Report

This shows one of the most immediate news reports that came after the Titanic crashed into the iceberg and sank. The most immediate report actually claimed that no lives had been lost. As we can see this one is more up-to-date, yet still not fully informed.

4. Abandoned Shoes

These were a pair of shoes found and left in the exact same place as a memory of the Titanic of the lives lost. These shoes have been left abandoned in the panic and chaos of the events of that terrible day. Photos such as these are a chilling reminder of all of those lives affected.

5. Eva Hart

This is Eva Hart. Her memory is now famous because she was a survivor of the ship and she went on to live to the age of 91 from being such a young girl on the Titanic. Here she is with her mother and father. She escaped due to the mother and child policy alongside her mother. Her father sank with the ship.

6. The Lifeboats

Here are the life-boats, not yet occupied by those who were rescued. here they are on the Titanic. It is one of the great tragedies not just that the Titanic crashed, but there were only enough lifeboats to fit one-third of all the passengers. Seeing them here is a line is a haunting reminder.

7. The Updated News

Back then, the news was of course less efficient and there was no such thing as online news. People had to wait for the release of the newspaper. Here we can see it broadcasting for the first time, the fact that thousands of lives had been lost during the tragedy.

8. J.P Morgan

This is J.P Morgan. He was a millionaire and he had booked a great suite on the ship. In fact, his rich friend was also going to be joining him on the ship. He pulled out of the voyage very last minute due to illness. But some people think that he knew what would happen and he warned his friend not to go too.

9. The Federal Reserve

Here he is again. The conspiracy does not just stem from the fact he pulled out last minute. But it comes from the fact that he would have benefited from the sinking of the ship as it would lead to the creation of the federal reserve – which it did.

10. A Prophecy

This was a novel written by Morgan Robertson 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic. The book is about a great ship called the Titan which crashes into an iceberg and sinks. The front cover shows a ship and an iceberg. The subject of the book is uncannily similar to the Titanic disaster.

11. The Unknown Ship

Eva Hart has given many accounts of that night due to being one of the survivors who lived a long time after the Titanic. She claimed that she saw a ship a few miles away that very same night. There are no accounts of this but some people believe it was an illegal seal hunting ship which concealed its journey.

12. The Unfilled lifeboats

(Image Source/ entertales)

When we see photos such as this it is heart-breaking. As we know, there were no way near enough lifeboats for the passengers. And, as we see here the first lifeboats that were filled were not even filled to capacity, they were half full. Which means more passengers could have been saved.

13. The Band

We all know the heart wrenching story of the band that went down with the ship, playing as they knew they were sinking. the band had eight members and they decided to play for the rest of the passengers, knowing that they were sacrificing their lives by doing so. Here is one of the violins from the ship.

14. Plumbing System

This is the real plumbing system from the Titanic. Of course, this is a recent photo which has been taken when the system is old and rusted and we can see how it has decomposed at the bottom of the ocean. Nevertheless to see real-life photos from inside of the ship is fascinating.

15. Eva Hart In Old Age

This is Eva Hart when she had grown old. One of the famous survivors of the Titanic. Years later, she could not talk about her experiences even with her own mother who was also a survivor of the Titanic. Only years later did she start to talk and after a while, she gave detailed accounts which have become historical information.

16. Charles Joughin

Charlies Joughin was one of the bakers aboard the ship. He became famous for surviving the ship, he stayed on board drinking alcohol and he threw chairs over board so that people could use them as floating devices. He managed to survive the freezing cold waters.

17. Being Built

This shows the Titanic when it was still under construction. It is a strange thing to see the Titanic before it was made, knowing the horrors of how it was destroyed soon after. At this point, the ship was almost ready and the final building was being done.

18. Before It Set Off

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

This is the ship before it took off. This gives us a perspective of the scale of the ship – this is one of the propellers and the men in comparison look miniscule. It gives us a feeling of the magnitude of the ship. It was one of the biggest boats ever to be made.

19. Captain Henry Rostron With Survivors

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

This is Captain Henry Rostron surrounded by survivors. They were being given an award. As we can see, they are in their ships uniform here again. It must have been a strange experience to put the uniform back on again after the trauma they experienced.

20. Survivors Being Rescued

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

In this image we see a recreation of the survivors being hauled along the side of the ship. You can see one ship in the front and two following behind. These are some of the passengers who managed to be rescued. Most of them were children or women due to the policy put in place.

21. Mother And Daughter Survive

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

Here is a mother alongside her daughter. Both of them survived the Titanic. As we can see in the mother’s face, she is still completely scarred by the experience here. Most of the passengers aboard the Titanic did were not able to survive, these two were given a place on the lifeboat.

22. Two Babies Survive

Similarly, these two small baby brothers were taken from the ship and put onto a life boat. Due them being so small they were prioritised when they were found and put onto the ship. As for their parents, it is unknown what happened to them. They were too young to realise what was happening.

23. The Unsinkable Molly Brown

Molly Brown is a famous figure of the Titanic. Not only did she survive herself, but she also helped other passengers survive too. And, when they went back to the wreckage she went along to help try and find people who had been left behind and had not been able to be saved on the life-boat.

24. A Fundraiser For Survivors

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

This is after the tragic incident. This is during a fundraiser that was held specifically for Titanic survivors, to raise money to help them. Those who had lost everything or those who needed help after the experience. We can see there was a huge turnout for the event.

25. First Class

(Image Source/ allthatsinteresting)

This is a bunch of passengers who are in first class on the boat. The treatment between classes differed massively back then. As we can see, they are being served drinks as they sit out on the deck on sun loungers draped with blankets. This was not long before the tragedy occurred.

26. Memorial

This is a Titanic memorial in New York to honor everyone who was involved, all of those who died or lost a family member and, those who survived and lived with the grief. It serves as a constant reminder of one of the biggest nautical tragedies ever.

27. Funeral Service

This is a funeral service after the Titanic had sunk. It is a funeral service that commemorated all of those aboard the ship who lost their life. It wasn’t a singular service but in honour of the thousands of lives that were lost on that terrible day.

28. Aboard the Lifeboat

(Image Source/ Mindblowingfacts)

Here we have a photo of one of the life-boats. It is filled with passengers. There was actually supposed to have been a life-boat drill that morning which had been scheduled and canceled. As a result, even the life-boats that were available were not filled as much as they could have been.

29. The Captain Chatting To Passengers

(Image Source/ Mindblowingfacts)

These are rare photos of the captain out and about on the ship. He is talking to his crew on the first photo and in the second photo he is casually chatting to a passenger. It feels very surreal to be able to see these photos from on-board the Titanic after knowing what happened.

30. The Captain Looking Through A Telescope

(Image Source/ Mindblowingfacts)

Again, here is a photo where we can see the captain of the Titanic. Here he has been captured on camera whilst he is peering through a telescope. The very telescope which was used to see the ice berg which sunk the Titanic. We can also see the passengers aboard the ship.
