The Last View Of The Titanic

HMS Titanic departed from Southampton on April 10, 1912.

The massive ship stopped at Cherbourg to pick up 274 more passengers and drop 24.

The next day the Titanic reached Cork, Ireland, where over a hundred passengers boarded the liner and seven departed.

One was Father Francis Browne, a Jesuit trainee, who snapped the known photo of the Titanic.

It departed at 1.50pm.

Never to be seen again. for the White Star ocean liner struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912.

The impact crushed the unsinkable ship's steel plating.

It was 'women and children first'.

"Sauve qui peux' came too late for over 1500 passengers and crew members.

At 2:20am the Titanic split in two to plunge to the bottom of the ocean.

The Captain went down with his ship.
