Titanic 100 years

Just spent some time looking through the rare images at the Big Picture...go here and spend some time appreciating history and the mystic of the luxury liner. Somber and intriguing!!

The sinking of the RMS Titanic caused the deaths of 1,517 of its 2,229 passengers and crew (official numbers vary slightly) in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The 712 survivors were taken aboard the RMS Carpathia. Few disasters have had such resonance and far-reaching effects on the fabric of society as the sinking of the Titanic.
