A Night to Remember

Today marks the 101st anniversary of the sinking of one of the greatest ships of all time, the RMS Titanic. She sank at 2:20am in the morning of April 15th, 1912, 2 hours and 40 minutes after hitting an iceberg four days into her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. More than 1,500 men, women and children died, making this one of the most catastrophic maritime disasters in history.

As I’m sure most of you will have heard the story about the ship and the sinking and how everyone thought she was unsinkable, I won’t bore you with the details. So let’s just enjoy a few pictures, both of the still and the moving variety, and remember this truly great ship as it once was.
